Enriching lives through art and craft

Episode 6 – Jennifer Allen and Maia Leppo

Episode 06 – Jennifer Allen and Maia Leppo

In our first episode with not just one, but two guests, I talk with ceramist Jen Allen and metals artist and jeweler Maia Leppo.  Jen and Maia have collaborated as artists and educators, having co-taught a ceramics jewelry workshop at Arrowmont.  We talk about that collaboration, but also how important life and creative transitions can be.  Visit both Jen and Maia’s websites at https://www.jenniferallenceramics.com/ and http://www.maialeppo.com/ respectively.


Jennifer Allen lives in Morgantown, West Virginia where she operates a home studio and teaches Ceramic classes at West Virginia University. She received a BFA from the University of Alaska and an MFA from Indiana University, Bloomington. She worked as a production assistant to Kris Bliss at Bliss Pottery in Anchorage, Alaska. In March 2008, the National Council for the Education of Ceramic Arts recognized Allen as an Emerging Artist. She is also the recipient of the 2006-2007 Taunt Fellowship at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana.
