Portrait No 34 – Jane, Pottery Artist


I can’t believe how long I’ve been away! I’ve been so busy with the launch of a new blog and a website for online photography courses that time has run away with me, I got such a shock to log on and see that it’s almost a year since my last post!

Last week I went to visit Jane at her studio, Fired 4U, near Preston. Jane left a career in hotel management 10 years ago to launch a pottery studio and offer adult and children’s pottery decorating parties and workshops.

I just love the walls that are decorated with the handprints of all the children that have had their birthday parties at Fired 4 U, such a great idea.


Even though I already knew that Jane takes commissions for decorated and personalised pottery I was amazed to see how effortless she makes painting look, this beautifully decorated tile took no time at all and she was even chatting away whilst she painted!


You can visit the website and find out more about Fired 4 U here and you can follow Jane on Twitter as @Fired4U.
