Leah Jensen is a multidisciplinary artist-maker, born in Cornwall, 1990.

Fortunate to be raised in a creative family, her education in art and making began in childhood, learning both the creative and practical applications of a broad range of materials. 


In 2010 Leah began her Degree in Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University, where she would develop a method that has since evolved to become a signature style. This process involves an image mapping technique that enables her to carve intricate geometric interpretations of Renaissance paintings into ceramic pots. The result is a work of vivid, immaculate detail as if to appear digitally manufactured, a style which Jensen playfully describes as ‘anti-digital’.

"While making, I feel at my most content when using my hands directly with the material and focusing on small details. In these moments the world is between my head and my hands. I recently observed that over the years I subconsciously abandoned machinery, I do not throw pots, I no longer use a wood lathe, I use a sewing machine only when its the logical option. Perhaps it feels as though machines are a distraction, a barrier to gaining understanding of the material."

Today Leah lives in London, working from a space at Cockpit Studios. She continues to carve ceramic vessels, whilst working on a number of other projects. 


For Jensen the starting point is either an idea that surfaces usually while making and daydreaming, or from a desire to use a certain material. Experimentation, sketchbook work and daydreaming are all vital steps in the progression of a project to determine the techniques and materials that will serve the idea best.
