About

Jennifer Ratican

Lakeland, FL

 

Welcome!  I am Jenn, a central Florida based ceramicist, glass artist, kiln technician, and teacher.  I have been fully immersed in fired arts for almost 20 years.  I have managed a contemporary ceramics studio for over 5 years.  I teach kiln formed glass, hand built clay, enameling, and metal clay.  You can find me hanging out at local outdoor art shows and markets.  The closer to the beach, the better.  As a technician for Jen-Ken kilns (when you're just getting started professionally, and you can't afford kilns, go to work for a kiln company!), I have learned almost everything there is to know about how kilns work, how to troubleshoot them, maintain them, and repair them.  I travel all over Florida helping other artists, teachers, and studios keep their equipment running.
