As a kid in Kansas, Jenny Dowd credits an insatiable appetite for all things art to creative, inventive parents, constant reading and “epic road trips” with the fam. After earning her BFA in Ceramics from Kansas State (where she met her husband, Sam by exchanging phone numbers carved into pieces of clay) and an MFA from the University of Missouri-Columbia, Jenny has taught and shown art all over the U.S. and produces pieces for several shops in Jackson Hole, WY.
A recent transplant to NWA, Jenny and Sam now live in Prairie Grove where they operate Dowd House Studios as full-time artists. Fascinated by the relationship between collector and object, Jenny primarily works in clay to produce functional, quirky, interactive pieces that jive with place and person. She also has worked extensively with the Art Association of Jackson Hole teaching ceramics, drawing, printmaking and artist professional development. Jenny is also the exclusive potter for the White Buffalo Club in Jackson Hole and a private chef in Denver, making custom service ware and plates.
