The Artist - Jane Henderson
My inspiration comes from my favourite places: the seashores of Orkney and Devon. When hand building my pots I love to play with the contrasting textures and colours of different clays, and by carving into the surface reveal the gritty nature of the clay. I have always been fascinated by nature and by the patination of surfaces that develop over time, like rust on a gate or lichen on a stone. I strive to capture something of this in my use of dry glazes and oxides on the surface of the stoneware.
