Jane Muir

Jane Muir studied ceramics at Central St Martins School of Art and the Royal College of Art. Since leaving the RCA in 1992 she has exhibited widely, notably in Ceramic Contemporaries, V&A, and a solo show at the Molesey Gallery, Surrey. In 1997 she was also awarded a Crafts Council Grant helping her to set up her present studio.
Jane Muir specialises in idiosyncratic hand painted figures representing a witty and uncluttered observation of the world. Figures that stand alone or placed in an architectural landscape are hand modelled, allowing her the freedom to sketch with clay and develop ideas during the making process. Jane's figures are not about specific individuals but are a personification of the stereotype or archetypal character.

Jane's work has been exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, America and Japan. Jane's inspiration comes from various sources and has remained fairly consistent throughout her career, including modern masters such as Peter Blake, Eduardo Paolozzi and Elizabeth Frink and some more traditional crafts such as the work of the Staffordshire Potters.
