Wayfaring Woman Ceramics is a small-batch, one-woman operation based in Portland, Oregon.
I am Jennée Antoinette, the maker.
I fell in love with pottery in high school and rediscovered it shortly after moving to Portland. Inspired by the colors and landscape of the Pacific Northwest, I try to infuse elements of nature into what I create.
The work of iconic storytellers also deeply influences my art. Toni Morrison, James Baldwin, Zora Neale Hurston, Audre Lorde, Maya Angelo, and Nina Simone — these are my mentors, my heroes.
Reflect. Create. Inspire.
I aim to create vessels that pay homage to my West African heritage and Black American culture. I seek to center Black women as the focal point of divine beauty, as art.
Through my work, I hope to honor those who came before me — the storytellers and creators, the innovators and liberators.
