Jeni Licata is a studio potter living and working in Boynton Beach, FL. After obtaining her B.S. degree in Psychology at the University of Central Florida, she began pursuing her love of working with clay and teaching adults and youth. Her current body of work is focused on handbuilding with slabs and press molds, combined with monoprinting processes onto the clay. She draws her designs on newsprint, using underglazes and custom developed slips for bright colors and contrasting designs. The print is then laid on top of the clay and peeled away slowly, leaving the hand-drawn image on the clay. Her bright colors and motifs are all inspired by growing up on the beaches and waters of the Sunshine State with summer boat trips to the Bahamas.
