Ginny Remedi Designs Jewels for the Journey

Spirited Jewelry and Home Accessories

Inspired by her high school art teacher, Ginny went on to major in Art and Art Education with concentrations in Pottery and Metalsmithing at Northern Illinois University. Ginny moved to Big Stone Gap, VV and became the first art teacher the school district had ever hired and taught 800 elementary school children every year for 3 years.
Yearning to delve deeper into her own creativity, she left teaching children, bought a potter’s wheel and an electric kiln and started her life journey as a full-time artist. Ginny worked 15 years as a full-time potter, built two gas kilns, and sold her work in her store/studio. She sold her pottery in gift stores and traveled to numerous art and craft shows to sell her work. Ginny taught pottery, at Mountain Empire community College, as well as in her studio.
After arriving in Boston, she set aside pottery for a while and worked full time for a master woodworker. Learning to use the tools of the trade and the properties of the materials, she designed and built furniture and cabinets. She is now using those skills in her metalsmithing, pottery, and display applications. Ginny uses her drawing skills and an affinity for problem solving to bring her ideas to life. She loves and is inspired by the malleableness of clay and metals and finds her joy in creating wearable and useable art objects. Her goal is to create beautiful things to cheer others on their life's Journey. Ginny named her work "Redeemed Earth Pottery" and "Jewels for the Journey" because when life gets really hard we need beautiful jewelry and objects to be remind us that we are beautiful and so is our world.
