January - Jane Follett - Ceramic Artist
Jane’s work falls into two main areas: wheel thrown domestic stoneware, usually decorated in coloured stripes over a white glaze with coloured internal glazing, and garden-ware - some hand-built and sculptural, others thrown.
Jane enjoys both the rhythm and discipline of throwing and the contrast of hand- building. This summer Jane spent many happy hours on a rocky foreshore using the hollows in the slate as a starting point for small sculpted vessels.Image courtesy of Jane Follett
