"The female form is one that exterior represents something of desire and delicacy, but the interior is something of great strength and bravery. It is this contradiction that I seek to emulate in my work."
Jacklyn Scott was born into an artistic family and spent most of her childhood in her mother’s clay studio, volunteering at craft centers, and, during college, working at Peters Valley in the summers. Her exposure to the beauty of handmade objects and the interesting people who make them led her to study and earn a degree at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, where she explored her many interests in printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics. She now works full-time at Hood College in Frederick, Maryland, as the Studio Manager for the Art Department where she is currently working towards her MFA in Ceramic Arts.
