Jean's work is mainly focused on the thrown form. She became interested in developing glazes after starting her business in 1991. At that time, she experimented with many types; from gas fired glazes inspired by Song Dynasty ware, to crystal glazes fired in an computer controlled electric kiln. This experimentation led to the work she is doing today.
The glazes Jean has developed for her work are a family of high-fired crystalline glazes. During the firing process crystals develop - a micro crystalline structure not noticeable to the naked eye. These crystals refract light and create the iridescent quality of the glaze. The process of glaze melt leaves crystal ropes in the surface which add a dynamic dimen-sion.
In creating glazes, Jean's objective is to do more than simply cover the form. The glazes she finds most appealing are those that invite your eye to take a closer look. Her goal is to achieve a balance between simplicity of form and richness of surface and to make pieces that can be appreciated over time through daily use.
These pieces are porcelain. They are microwave, dishwasher and food safe.
