Jo developed a passion for ceramics during her Art Foundation Course at Yarmouth Collage of Art and Design, before going on to study a further three years at Derby University. She experimented widely with different clays, glazes and firings loving the unusual forms and effects.
Jo has developed her own unique way of working inspired by the beauty of the hills and valleys of the High Peak. Her unglazed barrel fired pieces have a quality of natural earth with a contemporary twist, often incorporating 24 Carat gold leaf.
The development of ‘Blueware’ is an ongoing exciting progression of her work, a mix of glaze and burnished blue slip: the sgraffito intricately dripped with a transparent glaze.
