Meet the Makers-in-Residence

Jennifer Alford

MakerJennifer Alford

Maker in Residence 2023

Jennifer Alford is an award-winning Irish artist whose work features in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Ireland. Her work straddles several disciplines: wheel-throwing, sculpture and painting. Jennifer enjoys the contrast between the repetitive qualities of wheel-throwing and the looser, more instinctive actions of drawing and mark-making on the final surface.

Depending on the temperament of the piece, marks range from spontaneous incisions to derived abstract imagery displayed on contemporary vessels, box-forms and canvasses.

As a Making History 2023 maker-in-residence, Jennifer will research Brechin Round Tower.
