Jane Perryman has been a member of the Craft Potters Association for over 35 years. Her early work explored ancient making and firing processes of hand building and smoke firing using linear based surface marking.
“For the last decade I’ve integrated the different aspects of my making and writing practise to explore interlocking ideas of time and place through sequential forms.”
For this new exhibition, she will be showing a group of hemispherical double walled bowls mixed with different organic and man-made materials collected randomly, each a metaphor for memory and words.
Using combinations of press moulding, coiling and slabbing processes before burnishing the surface, her pieces are then low fired and then refined with sandpaper followed by a higher temperature firing.
“I hope the work rests somewhere within the space of opposites, expressing qualities of stillness and contemplation but also imbued with energy & tension.”
