Jo developed a passion for ceramics during her Arts Foundation Course at Yarmouth Collage of Art and Design and went on to study a further three years at Derby University experimenting widely with different clays, glazes and firings.
Since then Jo has developed her own unique way of working. Her unglazed barrel fired pieces have a quality of natural earth with a contemporary twist, incorporating 24 carat gold leaf.
'Blueware' is a mix of glaze and burnished blue slip: the sgraffito intricately dripped with a transparent glaze.
