Jan Nethercot Ceramics

Jan Nethercot

With ‘Tall Pod’ at my graduationI had always wanted to 'pot', but my very busy life as a Make-up and Hair Designer in television and film prevented me from developing this interest. Towards the end of my career I specialised in prosthetic make-up using some of the skills that I now use in my clay work.

At the turning point in my life, quite by accident, I studied for an HNC in Ceramics at Swindon College. This amazing experience finally unleashed my desire to 'play with clay'.

Shaping the soft clay to prepare it for further coilsThe clay takes me on a journey of exploration, satisfying some primeval urge. Opening the kiln at the end of one of these journeys, never ceases to surprise and delight me. It is a joy!
