Jenny studied Fine Art in Bristol. After working initially in bronze she started her career in ceramics after moving to Exeter. She works predominantly in terracotta, specialising in individual hand-built and slip decorated figurative sculptures. The cats that are exhibited here just want to flaunt their beauty, strike up a pose, saunter gracefully past and to generally be noticed. They revel narcissistically and unashamedly in their feline brio.
These cats are hand modeled with a white raku clay. They are decorated with slips, resist, sgraffito and inlay. Jenny might carry out further firings on the work with lustres or coloured glazes. They each rest upon a black honed granite base.
Jenny is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and The Craft Potters Association. She accepts commissions.
