Display artist/maker:

Jane Hamlyn

Born: 1940, UK, England, London

Ceramicist. She initially studied part time before joining the Studio Pottery Course at Harrow School of Art, under Michael Casson (1972-1974) after which she set up her own workshop. Whilst rich in both colour and texture the utilitarian aspect of her work is never far from sight. Her work celebrates the distinctive orange-peel effect of saltglaze, exploring its mottled surface over strong and uniquely shaped pots, jars and dishes often inspired from metal ware. She is a former chair of the Craft Potters Association (CPA) and also writes and lectures on ceramics
