CERAMICS

ARTIST STATEMENT

The focus of Jess' work is capturing chemical reactions and exploiting the beauty of nature. She grows zincite crystals within ceramic glazes and traps chemicals to create bubbles in blown and slumped glass. In much of her work, be it the wall paintings, jewellery or more functional pieces, she uses clay and glass purely as a canvas to show off the details of the reactions, she believes there's nothing better than nature.
