Looking for a unique and custom piece for your home? You’re sure to love the one-of-a-kind, handmade ceramics created by Jennifer Glenn. Although it’s only her first season at the market, Glenn says she “loves the sense of community at the market, both among the vendors and the shoppers.”
Her love for ceramics started by taking classes during high school and college as a source of therapy that provided balance while she worked towards her chemistry degree. Recently, she has set up a studio in her Osierfield home and has been producing pieces for the past nine months. Currently, she is exploring textures by pressing lace doilies into the clay body. She says “ the impression left behind is so lovely and tactile!”
Along with her ceramics, Glenn also sells pasture-raised, non-GMO chicken, turkey and duck eggs. Her chicken obsession started about 6 years ago when a friend gave her 7 hens and a rooster, and it has since grown to nearly 50 hens, a rooster, a turkey, and 3 ducks. She and her husband have converted an old peanut wagon into a mobile chicken tractor which they move periodically to give the chickens fresh forage and bugs to eat, in turn, they fertilize the pastures and give fresh eggs! Her son suggested calling their egg business “More Than A Dozen,” because purchasing their eggs goes beyond a simple transaction. It helps support their family farm, keeps money in the local community, contributes to sustainable livestock practices, and raises healthy & happy chickens.
In preparing to vend at the market, Glenn was trying to figure out how to combine the presentation of the ceramics and eggs. That’s when she came up with the idea of a chicken-shaped deviled egg tray! They make me smile every time I look at them! You can find Jennifer and all of the vendors at the last market of the summer this Saturday, July 27 from 9 a.m. to noon!
