Jane ran the Ceramics department and taught at Melton Mowbray College for 16 Years, also producing individual ceramics for several galleries in the UK and abroad. She is a professional member of the CPA. Recently she decided to change direction and rely on her work for a living. She needed to produce multiple, reasonably priced domestic lines. One of her most successful lines is her wine breather range, a registered design. Her work is produced in porcelain fired at 1260° centigrade. It is thrown and hand-decorated.
Wine breather range:
Jane’s wonderful little animals result from her mother’s impractical method of trying to let a bottle of red wine breathe whilst keeping the fruit flies away. This was by balancing the cork over the open top! Jane thought a purpose-built sculptural top was a better solution.
There are now fifteen designs in the range. Jane’s wonderful little creatures allow your wine to breathe, but keep the annoying little fruit flies out of the bottle, and at the same time you can enjoy the little beast adorning your bottle. Why not collect the whole menagerie? All of them are decorated by illustrator Kevin Maddison; with his quirky line and brush work, each animal becomes an individual piece of art. Each one a collectable item.
