Jane Muir’s ceramic work is hand-built and hand-painted using stoneware glazes. Fine artists such as Peter Blake, Eduardo Paolozzi and Elizabeth Frink, through to more traditional crafts such as the work of the Staffordshire Potters, have influenced her lively, warm hearted sculptural work.
Jane Muir graduated with BA (Hons) in Ceramics from Central St Martins School of Art, and an MA from the Royal College of Art. On leaving the RCA in 1992 she took a three-year post as artist in residence in a sixth form college. During this time her work was exhibited widely, notably at Ceramic Contemporaries, the V&A, and a solo show at the Molesey Gallery, Surrey. In 1997 she was awarded a Crafts Council Grant which helped in setting up her present studio in Peckham, London.
