The surface of Jen’s pots are decorated using intricate hand painted illustrations, sgraffito and mark making. The layering and texturing of subtle colour and earth-tones is integral to Jen’s work. Her illustrations are often botanical, drawing on her upbringing on the Yorkshire coast. This often includes an earthy pallette drawn from open landscapes and coastal seascapes, layered with drawings of gorse, sea thrift, seaweed, and lichen.
