Although starting out as a painter, Jane soon found that her passion lay in ceramic art. She began studying ceramics in 1990 and set up her own workshop in 1992.
Jane was born in Essex and moved to Cambridge in 1962 where she attended a course on Ceramics for three years and then opened her own workshop. Over the years she has developed her own personal style.
The greatest impact on her life was living in Asia. The wonderful simplicity and discipline of the art and culture there is seen in the way even the most humble objects are arranged.
She likes to keep her work simple, all her pots are made by hand, using coiling and pinching method, some are then burnished for smoke firing. She also makes slab and coil pots with abstract design using velvet glazes, first firing at 1000c then second firing at 980c.
She is a selected member of the Anglian Potters and has exhibited widely in the UK. She has work in private collections throughout the world and she has had many features in the National Press and one in Ceramic Review.
