Jennifer Mally is a printmaker, painter, and figurative sculptor. Her creative career began as a mechanical engineer in 1990. She earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering from UW-Madison after a year abroad where she attended a textile arts school in Varkaus, Finland. After years of machine design, Mally began looking for a more aesthetic outlet for her creativity, so she opened the Blackberry Glass Studio. For eight years she designed art-glass installations for architects and interior designers. In 2010 she returned to school and earned her Art Education license from Edgewood Collage in Madison, Wisconsin.

Mally's interest in ceramic sculpture began as a child, as her grandmother was a well-known figurative artist in the Detroit, Michigan area. She explored the human figure through wax, bronze, and clay. Starting very young, Mally would work alongside her grandmother in her studio drawing and sculpting clay.

Mally is the current director of the Adamah Clay Studios of Bethel Horizons and the Executive Director for Potters for Peace. She continues to express her love of art through printmaking, painting, and figurative sculpture work in clay.
