Jane Shaw

Ceramics Fibre Art

Creativity has always been fostered by my family. After being encouraged to pursue this, I studied 3D design at Bath Academy of Art, UK, with a focus on ceramics. I graduated with a BA(Hons) degree and received an invaluable education with both artistic and intellectual stimulation.

My passion has always been first and foremost clay; I love throwing vessels on the wheel, manipulating them to incorporate figurative aspects, and impressing detail using locally collected shells for emphasis. Stoneware glazes reflect my interest in the colours and textures of this region.

Recent circumstances have given me the opportunity to develop my skills in textile arts, classes in patchwork and quilting have fed my enthusiasm for fabrics, and I enjoy exploring my visual influences through textiles, playing with colour and stitching.

Mark Mitchell

Ceramics

Mark Mitchell  grew up in NZ in a creative environment  - I was always curious to see what my father had been inventing in his studio. My background in ceramics began in 1996 when I was working in a commercial pottery in Auckland.  I then became self-employed as a slip caster for 2 years.

I completed my Fine Arts degree IN 2001 and from  2002- 2005 was employed as the Pottery Tutor at Hungry Creek Art School, Auckland.  Here I continued to develop mold making and throwing skills, slab building processes, and surface treatments using terra sigilatta, decals, enamels, and screen printing.

I was chosen to represent NZ as an emerging Artist at the Fule International Ceramic Museums in China in 2007, where I worked alongside a group of internationally recognized Artists for 7 weeks. This was situated in an industrial tile and brick factory in the Shaanxi province, China.

In 2009 I was recipient of a 3 month residency in Shigaraki Cultural Ceramic Park, Japan, awarded by The Japan Foundation, Sydney. This gave me the opportunity to solely focus on creating a new body of work in an internationally recognized ceramic residency programme.  Since then I have been creating ceramic art - vessels, wall art and sculpture.

Burnt Earth Clay Art “Jolly Hot!”

I transform clay into art with head, heart, hands and heat.

Pottery has been my craft for 35 years. I have a ceramics certificate, Bachelor of Visual Arts and have taught both Art and Pottery. My pieces utilize strong colour, simple shapes, surface texture and mixed media. They are often quirky, sometimes spiritual.

My range constantly evolves with a current new range of glazes and domestic ware pairing earthy and bold colours.

One of my focuses is now on selling my work at local craft markets and my home based studio.
