About Jennifer Colquitt
My main pre-occupation is with making decorative wall panels and firing them successfully. The panels are textured and drawn on while the clay is still soft. The panel edges are important to me, they are never cut rigidly. The main themes in my work are trees, leaves, flowers and landscapes combined with the playful qualities of Naïve art.
Fine quality porcelain is wedged and rolled into slabs before being cut to the desired size. during a course of three firings, designs and patterns are then added.
Colour is obtained with oxides and metallic lustres through a series of three firings. Porcelain fascinates me as a material - it combines fragility with great strength enabling it to withstand very high temperatures to achieve its full potential. I love the endless possibilities discovered when working with clay and enjoy exploiting it's decorative qualities.
My philosophy is to always work consistently, by doing this I feel my work evolves and gradually goes in new directions.
In my studio I make the wall panels, small dishes and brooches. Recently I have begun to work with extruded forms covering them with decoration. My work is sold through many galleries (including Crafts Council approved galleries) events and exhibitions in the UK. My work has been on a regular basis for prestigious Ceramic events - "Art in Clay" Farnham, "Clay Art" Denbigh and "Earth and Fire" Rufford.
I have taken part twice in the International Potters Market, Bandol (southern France) it was an unique experience as it enabled me to meet many European potters and see the different styles of work.
