Visiting Artist | Jennifer Ling Datchuk | February 9th, 2021

Jennifer Ling Datchuk is an artist born in Warren, Ohio and raised in Brooklyn, New York.  Her mother came to the United States in the early 1970s from China; her father born and raised in Ohio to Russian and Irish immigrant parents.  Trained and educated traditionally in ceramics, her practice has evolved from sculpture to mixed media, focusing on domestic objects and the feminine sphere. Her work explores how “Western beauty standards influenced the East, how the non-white body is commodified and sold, global migrations of beauty, material culture, intersectionality, labor, identity, and personal history.”

Ling Datchuk holds an MFA in Artisanry from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and a BFA in Crafts from Kent State University. She has received numerous grants and awards including a 2020 United States Artist Fellowship and American Craft Council’s Emerging Voices Award. She has completed numerous residencies including the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China, Vermont Studio Center,  and the European Ceramic Work Center in the Netherlands. Ling Datchuk maintains her studio practice in San Antonio, Texas where she is an Assistant Professor of Ceramics at Texas State University.
