About Jane Samuel Ceramics
Ceramics Inspired by the Coast
My work reflects our journey through life, with ceramics inspired by the coast, broken shells, and the movement of the sea, with its ever-changing effect on the beach it washes over.
Looking deeper into my work it can be said that the fragility of the human mind and body coupled with the unpredictability of life itself, if visualised, are like the broken and fragile shards of porcelain which fill my forms.
Often our fragility is hidden away under many protective layers, these layers are represented by the glaze; which when fired envelops many of the shards, as they are sanded away the hidden beauty beneath is revealed. These fragile shards are ‘held’ in strong silence by the forms that surrounds them
