Jane Human is a painter and printmaker whose origins are in the East Anglian Fens, and whose main focus is landscape and the exploration of a sense of place. She is particularly inspired by the marshes, creeks and beaches of North Norfolk.
Most of Jane's paintings utilise printmaking processes, particularly layers of monoprint.
Sam Hall has, over the past ten years, produced a consistent and significant body of ceramics. Born in Shipley, West Yorkshire, he studied ceramics at Harrogate and Loughborough colleges. He now lives in St Ives, Cornwall and works in the Gaolyard Studios there set up by the potter John Bedding.
Each piece starts as a simple thrown cylinder of stoneware clay. It is then cut and altered to produce a flat sided oval form. The extent to which this process is taken is governed entirely by the nature of the original cylinder and those minute variations in weight, form, feel which give each piece its unique character.
