I’ve been working in clay for three years and still have much to learn. I’m trying to push my boundaries in terms of form and scale, learning by my mistakes and profiting from happy accidents—after all it’s only a piece of clay.  I find it fascinating and I’m having fun.

I am inspired and influenced by organic shapes and the beautiful Shropshire countryside. I am a printmaker and ceramicist. I work in paperclay, mainly porcelain but also chocolate clay. The strength of paperclay gives me the opportunity to hand build my vessels with a sense of the fragility of a flower or a leaf. I mainly leave the beauty of the fired clay in the final vessel, but a few are glazed, smoked or occasionally have the addition of kintsugi – an ancient Japanese method which uses gold as an enhancement. This year I will also be exhibiting some of my paintings. Mobile 07758363189 EmailRead More →

Throughout my whole life, all I have ever wanted to do is create. From knitting with bits of string and pencils as a child, to crocheting, painting, printing and even playing with porcelain as an adult. Creativity is in my blood. I completed my degree at Wolverhampton university, as a mature student, graduating with a BA(hons) in 2017. I use various different techniques and practices in my work, such as print and textiles. Currently I am using porcelain and glass, to create insect curiosities, with an idea to expand this into textiles. www,janinealgerdesign.etsy.com www.janinealger.wixsite.com/mysiteRead More →
