Nature Informs Jackie Lanier’s Creative Clay

Each month, Local Treasures has an Open house, which The Rickie Report announces.  If you have not stopped in yet, you have not figured out why Kathy Barry calls her shop “Local Treasures”.    Don’t wait for the next open house – stop by and take your time looking at the work of the creative artists who live among us.  Local Treasures is located at    357  Cypress Drive Suite 6 in  Tequesta, FL  33469.  For more information:    561-741-1901  www.local-treasures.com

Maybe it was the beauty of Niagara Falls, where  Jackie Lanier was born and raised, that inspired her to appreciate and become involved with the Arts.  Although she enjoyed painting and weaving, it was the nature of clay that inspired her the most.  She began working with ceramics while attending the State University College of Arts and Science at Geneseo in upstate New York in the 1970’s.

After graduating Cum Laude, Jackie accepted a teaching position in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.   She taught elementary art for six years, and from there, decided to set up her own studio and become a professional potter.  Lanier also went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Art Education from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton in 1979.

In December of 1995, Jackie was chosen to initiate and establish the curriculum for the Ceramics Department at the Palm Beach Community College in Palm Beach Gardens, FL.   She became one of the first adjunct professors to teach ceramics at the Eissey Campus.  In October of 2003,  she was contacted by her first ceramics professor from SUNY Geneseo, Carl Shanahan, inviting her to have a One-Woman Alumni show at the Opus Gallery on the campus of Geneseo.

In November, 2007, Lanier’s clay designs were accepted into the premier showing at the AE Backus Museum and Gallery in Ft. Pierce, Florida.  She shares, “This was particularly important to me, as I have admired the paintings of AE Backus for as long as I’ve been in Florida”.

When asked to describe her work, Jackie says, “My clay vessels are truly unique in design, all originating from being “thrown” or hand molded on the pottery wheel.  My pit-firing, raku and saggar firings are all primitive, yet controlled methods of achieving the overall patterns and surfaces of the work”.
