Hi! I’m Jen LaPier. I’ve been an artist one way or another for as long as I can remember and discovered my love for making ceramics in 2013. Since then, I’ve built my business, Stone & Sage Ceramics and evolved the style of my creations while moving my practice from a tiny garage studio, to a lively shared creative space in the Portland Alberta Arts district, to where I am now: a wonderfully rustic detached garage-turned studio set into the Oregon countryside and surrounded by pastures with grazing cows and tall douglas firs.
The ceramics I make are inspired by the natural landscape of the Pacific Northwest and I love nothing more than having the opportunity to create everyday objects for folks as a way to enhance daily rituals and make personal connections. I've always been drawn to the idea of day-to-day objects as little works of art.
When I’m not in the studio, I’m most likely either spending time with my partner and our four pigs, two cats, and our tortoise named Clem or working outside on the farm to build our garden while dreaming about a future flock of chickens and the day when the blackberries are finally under control (ha!).
