Working from her studio at home in Whitstable. Jan Draws on her love of both the coast and the surrounding countryside, producing quality functional ceramic pieces fired to stoneware temperatures. ‘My work is designed to be comfortable to use and beautiful to look at, yet always with functionality in mind. Each piece is designed to be truly unique and this is reflected in my processes which have been designed to produce interesting and varied results through the layering of my glazes.’ All of her pottery is handmade. The work is mostly thrown by hand on a wheel, then glazed and fired to stoneware temperatures. All functional pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe.
