Meet the Instructor: Jesse Kasper
Jesse Kasper became obsessed with the world of ceramics at a young age. Family vacations to the Western U.S. in the early 1990’s allowed her to explore ancient Anasazi ruins. A house fire created broken shards of pottery that became intricate puzzles to solve. These experiences helped Jesse to form a deep connection with history and cultivated a love for the functional and hand made. A Montessori background adds to her lifelong love of learning and teaching. Jesse holds a BFA in Ceramics and a BA in Advertising from Michigan State University. She has been a practicing ceramicist and educator for over 10 years. Jesse lives in Jackson, MI with her wife Hannah, son Ocean and crew of furry family members.
