Jennifer Newman's philosophically explains: "My work is based on our journey of life, its layers and strata. Through time and pressure beauty is created. we mine the soul to find the precious things. Life refines and polishes our history and the choices we have made. Our layers and compartments are filled with experiences and memories. My study of clay has influenced all my art in the use of texture and form."

Crabby Taylors creates supurb, unique raku ceramics.
She says "Clay is more than just a material to me, it is the fabric of our history and life passed. I employ the simplest techniques, thousands of years old, dating back to our first vessels which fundamentally evolved our way of living. I hand build using various clays to give texture and colour. I fire using a range of techniques including Raku, Saggar and Smoke Firing which deliver unique markings to each piece. Through these vessels we make connections, expressing emotion and a shared dialogue."
