Solo Ceramic Showcase
9th January - 28th April 2018
Jane Pritchard is a ceramicist living and working in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. She originally trained as a graphic designer but then changed careers taking an MA in Ceramics (UCA Farnham) in 2011.
Her current range of work centres on the theme of Renewal and how our environment (both built and natural) changes with the passage of time; also how 'new' contrasts with 'old' – for example, smooth, white surfaces against textured, dirty – and enhances both. A recent, controversial, renovation of El Castillo de Matrera in Cadiz exemplifies this.
The pieces above were inspired by a recent visit to the Palacio da Pena in Sintra, Portugal. They are handmade from porcelain with copper, cobalt, iron and manganese oxides.
