Jane Newton - Potting Mad Pottery
Studio Potter, Painter
Jane started her love affair with clay in London in 1969. She was taught by a master potter who taught her the traditional skills of throwing and turning on the wheel.
In 1973 she made Australia home and her skills were consolidated at Midland Tafe where she gained many distinctions for her work.
Jane has won numerous awards for her large bowls, jars and vessels which have gone world wide. Her work reflects her passion for shape and colour that dominates her work. Her pots take hours to throw, glaze and fire, and they also inspire her students to create outstanding work.
