Driftwood and Ceramics
One of the treats of doing what we do (artism & tartism) is receiving work from a new artist to exhibit in our place. Today I did just that and the basket of goodies in bubblewrap sits beside me as I type waiting to be installed later this afternoon. Jane James is an artist who studied at the school of art here in Colchester and lived in the area until moving with her family to the island of Jersey in 2007. Jane's work like the majority of our other artists' is inspired by living on the coast and I think it is guaranteed to brighten your day! She works in driftwood and ceramic and makes a range of hand painted pieces with speciality glazes that produce a magical lustre to capture the colours of the sea.
