Victoria Jane Ceramics
From my studio in Wigan, Northwest England, I create ceramic vessels, sculptures and murals. My work is inspired by beautiful flora and fauna, British wildlife, nostalgia and traditional images, patterns and rituals. I am fascinated by traditional objects like ceramic rolling pins, soap dishes and glass bottles. I endeavour to create beautifully unique treasures which bring a contemporary twist to the traditional.
After graduating from Leeds University with a degree in Fine Art Ceramics in 1998, I eventually found myself working in Art Education within public sector art galleries, as well as gaining an MA in Museum Studies along the way. I enjoyed the engagement and stimulating aspects of educating, but decided I wanted to be more hands-on, so in 2005 I made the big step to go self employed.
Over the years I've developed a few branches to my practice; incorporating my own work, commissions, educational projects as well as some freelance Technician and Consultation work. This ensures that every day and project is unique for me. I sell my own work online at Etsy and stock a limited number of craft outlets.
