Jacqui has been a potter for over twenty years and during that time the main focus of her work has been resist Raku. However recent work has explored new surface treatments where texture forms the background for botanical imagery. Using under-glaze for dramatic colour variations, Jacqui aims to replicate, to some extent, the look of raku fired clay.
Using varied methods of making Jacqui often combines techniques to create forms. Inspiration for form and pattern is drawn from many sources but the view from her studio window which looks out over her garden and the woodland beyond in rural Shropshire has the most enduring influence, ever changing with the seasons, a rich palette of colour and shape.
