A showcase of Jane Crisp's work, and her contemporary take on the classic trug


As a child Jane was taught the importance of looking after our habitats, environment and each other and the positive affect this has on our lives. She became interested in the beauty of necessity, the mother of all invention. Jane believes that functional objects can be elevated, in very simple ways creating heirlooms and longevity in designs we live with every day. 

Jane takes inspiration from her local Norfolk and Cambridgeshire countryside, history and tradition, flora and fauna. She loves colour and the textural qualities of natural materials like wood, wool and copper. Jane experiments with the power of invention through processes such as steam-bending that expose the natural properties of materials but also references history and sentiment.
