Having worked for a number of years creating simple, but striking enamel jewellery in silver and copper Jane has more recently focused on enamelling opper bowls and textured copper foil. Her popular autumn leaves collection is made from thicker foil that has been formed and textured before enamelling and firing.
The larger surfaces of the bowls and leaves, with their curves and slopes provide an excellent ‘canvas’ for endless experimentation with the enamels. Enamels not only vary in colour, but also in how they interact with each other, the underlying metal and how they respond to particularly high temperatures. Jane is able to use these processes to create a range of small bowls in a variety of designs and colours.
She works from a studio at home and exhibits on Arts Trails and Craft Fairs around the region. Her very portable enamelled leaves and small bowls have been sent or taken as gifts to many countries including the US, China, France, Canada, Poland and Cyprus. They have made unique presents for house warming, wedding presents, anniversaries etc. She is happy to undertake commissions of individual leaves (even those from an individual’s front garden) or linked ‘chains’ of leaves and bowls.
