Robina Jack

Having spent decades working with noxious chemicals in a tumbledown bike shed at the foot of the garden creating the stained glass panels for which she is better known, Robina Jack has recently transferred her love of surface pattern to ceramics.

"The move and the change of media have been transforming. My work is still driven by pattern and colour and still feels incomplete without a patterned border, but I am no longer constrained by glass's limitations - clay is endlessly malleable. Using my own moulds, I make earthenware pots which I decorate in coloured slips and transparent glazes with animals, plants and coastal motifs."
