Her work:

Jacqui’s work is mainly thrown, sometimes hand-built, working in series and making one-off pieces. She primarily use porcelain or stoneware and her glazes are all oxidised and fired to 1250°/1280° C.

Travelling has had a great influence on her sources of reference, which range from weathered paint on old doors to the colours and textures of coral.

In response to these references, much of her work is multi-glazed and multi-fired, using the vessel as a canvas, layering slips with oxides under and over textured glazes, to achieve a patina of depth and variety.

There are limitless combinations of textures and colours, and this unpredictability ensures that no two pieces are exactly the same.
