Porcelain & Print
Jan is an award-winning artist who uses print and frottage to reveal and reflect on a moment in time, capturing the memory of an object using direct print from antique clothing, textiles, and using bird/butterfly and botanical imagery to express ideas of transition and transformation. Her work occupies an ambiguous space between the real and the symbolic.
She started her career in couture dressmaking with Zandra Rhodes and went on to work with Jean Muir, David, and Elizabeth Emmanuel and in an international capacity for the Queens dressmaker, Norman Hartnell.
Now as a professional artist for over twenty-five years using a variety of materials, found objects and techniques. Jan is now working with mainly porcelain and produces figurative sculpture, portraits, and small vessels. They are delicate and textured, her ceramic technique is self-taught, using her couture dressmaking skills working with fine chiffon and lace to drape fabrics directly onto a figure.
Jan exhibits widely and her work is in collections across the country. She works and teaches from her studio and home at Crofts Farmhouse, Leasgill, Milnthorpe, Cumbria, LA7 7EX.
