JANE KELLY, POTTER writes:

Raised in New Zealand and London, I trained as a potter at Wimbledon, Norwich and Medway Colleges of Art under Tony Gant, David White, Colin Metcalfe, Peter Phillips, Siddig el Ngoumi and others.  Within a few years of moving north to Portobello with my growing Scots family, I established a studio pottery in the centre of Penicuik.

 In Edinburgh in the mid seventies I first set up pottery classes for adults at Cannonball House and taught there and at Infirmary Street for thirty years; I also teach regularly from my Penicuik pottery and at the Garvald community.  But in many schools and art colleges the teaching of pottery has been brought to an end, and indigenous pottery manufacture becomes harder and harder to find.

Enthusiasm among lovers of the craft of pottery is strong in Scotland and New Zealand.  With annual summer schools and occasional special pottery events at my Valleyfield House studio in Penicuik, I also exhibit each November at Penicuik Arts Centre and have shown with Scottish Potters at Aberdeen, Banchory, Broughton, Dunfermline, Glasgow, Nairn, Stirling, Perth, Alloa and Milngavie.

I concentrate on thrown pots: useful wares like jugs, teapots, mugs, cups, plates and bowls, saltshakers and butterdishes.  Unusual commissions include Dalhousie Castle Hotel, the Traverse Theatre, and involvement in the Royal Botanic Garden’s Wych Elm Project.
