Rose, also known as bean jelly, is a ceramic artist and literary translator originally from Chicago. She received an MFA in Comparative Literature-Translation and Post Baccalaureate in Ceramics from the University of Iowa in 2019, and is currently a first year student in the ceramics MFA program.
Rose is primarily devoted to the creation of wheel thrown, functional objects that are fluid, organic, and non-rigid. She has worked across a wide range of materials and firing processes. Most recently, her work has moved away from more muted tones to embrace bright, solid colors and increasingly bulbous, exaggerated forms.
