Sculptures in alabaster, soapstone, onyx, slate and marble.
Jane hand-carves stone, mainly alabaster, soapstone, onyx and slate. Much of her time is spent learning how the material quality of stone can be balanced with her own ideas and inspirations. She explores its texture, translucency, the roughness of natural stone and its appearance when smoothed. She investigates its ability to hold the tool marks and gestures that reveal the presence of the artist. Jane works in her studio in Chilgrove and has recently completed an MFA in Sculpture at West Dean College.
