Biography

Judith Pointer Jia is H. W. Stodghill, Jr. and Adele H. Stodghill professor of art at Centre College where she has taught since 1998. She received a Kirk Teaching Excellence award in 2016.

As the head of the ceramics studio, Jia teaches all levels of ceramics as well as introductory drawing classes. Her experience teaching both drawing and ceramics extends back to graduate school at the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth where she was awarded instructor of record positions in both areas.

Jia’s artwork is created from fine porcelain and stoneware. Her forms are delicate slab constructions that are often closed and seem full of air. A variety of subtly colored glazes and stains envelop the forms. Her work has been chosen for exhibition and won awards in several national competitions including Prevailing Winds, Current Trends in Contemporary American Ceramics, at Young and Constantin Gallery in Wilmington, Vt., and the Wichita National All Media Craft Exhibit, at the Wichita Center for the Arts. A piece was recently shown at the Gaolin International Biennial Ceramic Exhibition at the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute in China. She regularly exhibits her work at the Ann Tower Gallery in Lexington, Ky., and the Kentucky Museum of Art + Design in Louisville.

In 2004, Jia was awarded an Al Smith Fellowship from the Kentucky Arts Council which she used to fund travels in China. There she visited cities noted for their history of ceramic production, touring old kiln sites and contemporary artist’s studios. She also spoke with ceramic scholars with expertise in the ceramics of the Song and Yuan dynasties, eras whose ceramics Jia has long admired for their elegant forms and glazes.

Jia is also the coordinator of the AEGON Gallery, which is on campus.
