Pottery by Jan Lord. Bronze Bowl
Jan Lord is an artist and Plantswoman from Richmond, North Yorkshire. Her knowledge and passion for her local landscape is borne out through her work as she blends the organic forms, shapes and order of the natural world to create stunning pieces.
From her North Yorkshire studio, the artist creates freely. She never plans in detail what the finished piece will be like, preferring to let the clay lead. Using material from the natural world such as leaves, shells, coral and other organic materials impressed into the clay she uses coiling, pinching and slabbing techniques.
As Jan uses glass and oxides in the glazing process, her ceramic creations are solely decorative.
Her work is featured in private collections in the UK and Europe
