Pottery / Crochenwaith
Jane is a local potter and works from her studio on the family farm in Dyffryn Ardudwy. She works on the wheel to produce both functional and sculptural home wares. Her work is inspired by the local shoreline and landscape, as well as being influenced by vintage patterns.
Jane has been making pots since graduating from university more than twenty years ago. During this time Jane has worked in several potteries including Winchcombe Pottery, Whichford Pottery and Hook Norton Pottery. For the past ten years Jane has focused on her own designs alongside teaching ceramics. Some of her inspiration has come from artists such as Ray Finch, Eddie Hopkins, Jack Doherty, Alistair Young, Toff Milway, Jim Keeling and Victor Hugo to name but a few!
Jane has truly defined her own style and in 2015 she famously took part in the TV series, ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down’ becoming a runner up in the show. Jane has brought a fantastic sample of her work to this exhibition and one can see her coastal influences in the jelly fish and seaweed design in her ceramic pots that come in a wonderful mix of blues and greens. Jane exhibits her work widely and we are really chuffed to have her so close by giving a truly local flavour from the landscape portrayed in her work.
