Her work draws on ancient forms and symbolism, building on journeys through Africa where she researched the spiritual use of clay in traditional communities. 

Jane began her ceramics journey in the 1990s and led the ceramics department at Bath College for 15 years.  She is an ordained interfaith minister and Frome resident. New work explores the prehistoric legacy of the Somerset and Wiltshire landscape.
