"I am a ceramicist with a love of the vessel in its many forms - the idea of containment fascinates and continually challenges me."
Although Jacqui began her ceramics journey as a hand builder, she found throwing on the wheel suited her exploration better.
As well as natural and urban landscapes, she finds inspiration in
the seemingly random and mundane, found objects that suggest a fragment of a story; these things also inform her colour palette.
Jacqui works primarily with porcelain as it has the right qualities to support the finishes she want to achieve and explore. The surfaces of her vessels are used as a way to express a narrative and achieve a patina of depth and variety; surfaces are gradually built through layering glazes and multi firing, ensuring each piece is unique. They are used as a canvas to investigate the myriad combinations of texture and colour.
