Stop by the Build Coffee patio on September 21 during the 61st Street Farmers Market for the sweetest mugs and pots, crying and not, by Jamila Goods!
Jamila Goods (instagram.com/jamilagoods) is potter Jess Miller, based in Chicago. Jess makes functional ceramics influenced by feelings, intuition, and playfulness. Her work as a clinical psychologist greatly informs her pottery practice—she strives to counterbalance the seriousness and intellectual focus her job demands with a more playful and impulsive method of creating. She has found wheel-throwing to be an ideal complement to being a therapist, encouraging her to get out of her mind and tune into her body to be able to center and form the clay. In trying to find synergy between the disciplines of therapy and pottery, she hopes that each practice informs and strengthens the other.
Build Coffee is a coffee shop and bookstore in the Experimental Station on the South Side of Chicago. Surrounded by community-driven non-profits and civic journalism projects, Build is designed as a hub of great coffee and radical collaboration.
