The main focus of Jayne’s pottery is that it functions. The form and size of the pots are made with usability in mind.
“Texture and other decoration are both for aesthetic interest and function. These either give grip or highlight the contours of the pot allowing for easier visual understanding before and whilst the pot is in the hands.
“The hope is that they fit well in the hands and therefore become an extension of the user’s own body. The pots she makes often feature turned feet and repeat pattern carved or painted in bands around the body of the pots.
Jayne’s work takes inspiration from many sources; most apparent are both Japanese and British studio pottery, and the most direct influence is from her own use of handmade pottery at home.
