Jennie Durant is a Norwich based artist who creates tactile smoke fired raku pots. Jennie incorporates glazes that reflect the patterns and textures of the natural world. Her designs are both practical and delightful to use and enrich the users visual and tactile environment.
“Pottery is a very tactile craft. Throughout the process of making I try to keep the clay’s soft and plastic qualities alive. I enjoy the unpredictable and sometimes surprisingly beautiful results you get from a raku firing which makes it an exciting art form. In all my pots, I try to get beautiful shapes combined with glazes which move, make the pot come alive and are totally unique.”
