Born in South Wales
Graduated in 2000 – 1st class Hons Ceramics, U.W.I.C. Howard Gardens, Cardiff.
Jane mainly works using Raku techniques – “Naked Raku” – slip and glaze are applied to the once fired pot, then refired; removed from kiln when the glaze is molten, the glaze cracks with the cold air, placed into sawdust and sealed to make a reduction chamber – the carbon is sucked into the cracks. Later, the glaze is removed, leaving only the magic of the smoke. Alternatively, a thin layer of metal oxide is applied and reduced, producing beautiful lustres as the oxide returns to its original metal e.g. copper.
All Jane’s work is wheel thrown, and mostly Limoges Porcelain is used.
