In her second solo exhibition at the Faulconer Gallery, Jill Davis Schrift, lecturer in art, creates ceramic work to transform and enrich the daily routine of eating and drinking to an artful experience. In the vase series, Schrift brings together traditional vessel forms with contemporary techniques to activate the surface of clay. 

Schrift has been a lecturer in art at Grinnell College since 1988, teaching ceramics, drawing, and introduction to the studio. Past exhibitions have included her pastel drawings of the annual Paris beach at the Bibliothèque Marguerite Audoux, Paris; collages at Les Vergers de l’Art, Paris; and pastel drawings, collages and ceramic work at the Grinnell (Iowa) Regional Medical Center and at the Grinnell Arts Center.
