Jane is an international award-winning artist working from her home studio and workshop surrounded by beautiful countryside in Hale Fen, Cambridgeshire.
Her designs are made to use and love, amplifying traditional techniques in a contemporary way, experimenting with the methodologies of making and evolutionary crafts.
The inspiration for her small batches of steam-bent trugs comes from the Norfolk reeds and draws on her creative personal connections with local heritage and low-tech processes.
Steam-bending, the clinker like construction and the use of copper nails and roves derive from traditional boat-builder’s techniques. They also create sculptural qualities and if you catch these vessels in the wind they will rock like boats.
