Jane is a potter, living in downtown Northampton, Massachusetts. Although she doesn’t make her living from selling pots, she does love to make them. “My goal is to make pots that are both functional and beautiful. I feel that the beauty of a pot derives from its form, so I strive to make graceful shapes, the decoration, glazing and firing serving to compliment the shape. I draw inspiration from fellow ceramics students, my teachers, and potters through the ages.

“I throw on the wheel with both porcelain and stoneware clay, sometimes adding decorative techniques including slip, underglaze and scrafitto. I glaze and fire my pots using both traditional and alternative methods: electric, gas, raku and pit.” You can see examples of these at her website.
