Jessica Steel

Jessica trained as a ceramicist during her degree in Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University. Her love for drawing and use of colour has driven an exciting relationship with this material. Jessica throw stoneware vessels, which are hand painted and coated with her own recipe reactive glazes. This is a small, personal library of glazes that she has created over the past two years.

"I am passionate about developing this further. My glaze recipe is tweaked slightly before it is applied to each vessel, a technique I have carefully developed over a period of time to take control over what started off as quite an unpredictable glaze. Grasping a sense of control over each stage of production is very important. It allows me to bring my paintings and illustrations to life in 3D."
