I’m Jessica – the J behind LePennyJ Ceramics & Etc. I’m a potter. I’m a runner. I’m a yogi. I’m a traveling fool. And I love nature and the outdoors. Most everything on this site will be pottery and ceramics related, I still haven’t fully figured out the Etc in the name . . . but it’s likely that I’ll occasionally share ramblings on other topics. I live in Alexandria, VA with my husband and daughter – my mini helper who inspires me to be a little more free in my works. Thank you for visiting!
