Jane Smith

“There is a challenge within the crafting of the materials so that their combination is both balanced and beautiful.”

A key element of Jane’s work emphasises the importance of balance and harmony,
both aesthetically and physically. She is currently enjoying combining the
materials and techniques of glass and ceramics to create pieces that explore this balance.

“I am trying to get the two materials to have their own language, but still sit
together.”

The glass and clay elements within Jane’s work can often be physically separated,
but the way they work together tells a story about the relationship between
humankind and nature.

“There is a challenge within the crafting of the materials so that their
combination is both balanced and beautiful.”

‘Jane’s work explores the relationship between various aspects of our environment
and how, although they are often contrasting, they work together to create a
balanced outcome. The tension between these two materials augments a sense of
balance.’ – Sarah Crooks.
