Work from the land, ideas from the sea
A ceramics graduate of Cardiff, Jacqueline makes thrown and handbuilt forms based on the environment where she lives in Devoran and where her studio is based in Penpol, Cornwall. Coastal rock formations and creek views inform her aesthetic language. The clay is local and the emphasis is on form and surface.
Jacqueline’s broad pottery teaching experience spans more than 30 years and encompasses all age ranges from pre-school to adults, both classroom and workshop based. For many years she has worked at Rochester Independent College – previously as Head of Art and currently (part-time, mainly working remotely from Cornwall) as Director of Visual Arts and Marketing.
She was a Learning and Participation Officer at the Leach Pottery in St Ives for over 5 years. and still occasionally teaches both there and at Truro College.
Waters Edge Studio
Waters Edge Studio, set in an idyllic location, is a constant inspiration. The view from the studio window allows Jacqueline to consider the rise and fall of the tide, the ever changing colours and the effects of the weather. Cornish weather is fast – one minute it may be glorious sunshine reflected off the creek mud at low tide, the next the mizzle may come down rendering the landscape with a soft grey glow.
