COVID Creativity: Ceramics by Jessica Rosenberg

COVID Creativity is a new Source arts feature highlighting the work of our creative readers as they respond to a time of global pandemic. All visual artists and creative writers are encouraged to share with us new works that have been created as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Poetry and creative prose submissions are limited to 1,500 words and should include a brief bio of the writer.

Visual art submissions should include at least one high quality image or video and a very brief bio along with an artist’s statement that speaks to the inspiration of the work. The statement should include the title if there is one, the medium used and what the work means to you.

Please send submissions and questions to visourceart@gmail.com.

“As an artist I respond to my place, circumstances and in this latest case, a pandemic. The COVID pandemic will mark each of us forever, and so I felt that making an object to be used daily would help keep all the confusion, anxiety and fear in our memories, so that we might prevent this from happening again.”

– Jessica Rosenberg

Jessica Rosenberg is an artist who makes functional and sculptural ceramics on St. Thomas. She works primarily with stoneware, porcelain and raku clay bodies. Much of her work is hand-built, though some is wheel-thrown.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
