Working from her studio in Lancashire Jan Scott creates a range of functional and decorative ceramics inspired by urban and rural landscapes.
Her subjects involve population, decay, regeneration and the passage of time.
Jan’s `people’ range of vessels and wall art have individually hand drawn motifs; some left unglazed and sanded for a smooth satin matt finish, others have a clear glaze.
Her porcelain ranges include the `Red Hat’ Romance where upon a series of vessels they make their way through the crowd to be with their loved one. There is also a multi-coloured bright range and a denim range with mostly blues and greys with denim hats.
The warmth of the natural stoneware people vessels are the basis for her `Woolly Hat’ range with a blend of rich autumnal colours and knitted hats.
Her simple contemporary sculptural forms in porcelain or black groggy clay are distinctive, tactile and can be displayed individually or as a group.
This collection Jan has created for Heart Gallery celebrates the individuality of people amidst the hustle and bustle of city life. Amongst the madding crowd, glimpses of humanity, a helping hand or a loving hug.
