For the last 17 years Jo has specialised in wheel-throwing after a training that began 25 years ago at Bath School of Art. Her Masters at the Royal College of Art is where Porcelain became her focus.
‘Porcelain objects are renowned for their beauty and delicacy but, as a maker, it is an amazing material to work with because of its elastic and fluid feel as a clay. These material-qualities lend themselves to methods of making not possible with other clays – its qualities after kiln-firing, its translucency, that allow it to glow in strong light, or its inert surface that carries colour so well. These qualities inspire my work, alongside an evolving visual language that builds from one design to the next’.
