Jackie is obsessed with the metamorphoses of dirt when subjected to unspeakable stress and heat. The challenge, failure, creation, character and beauty that all speak to our own journeys as humans.
The fascination with the post firing reveal drives her exploration of Raku fired works. Shadow play drives much of her wall installation and sculpture works.
The Aotearoa collection features craggy metallics, frothy matte white sea foam, turquoise, aqua seas and locally collected sands.
Nature and symbols provide inspiration for floral, coral, symbol, wall installation and display pieces.
Jackie’s wide range of work includes Smoke, Saggar, Salt, Horse Hair, Feather and Naked Raku.
