Jane Charles

Jane Charles makes unique glass bottles and sculptures, with each piece, small or large demanding time, energy and painstaking skill to finish.
In 1980 Jane Charles studied at the North Staffordshire Polytechnic to study ceramics, she loved the material but was getting frustrated with the length of time that the process took. Next door was a studio glass workshop and Jane found that it was a hot noisy and very exciting environment, but most importantly to her, the process was immediate. A piece could be made in one day and out of the kiln the next to start (cold) working on. Jane then began her love of making hot glass.

“I tried to fight my growing interest in the medium but eventually had to give in. Here began my affair with hot glass. The techniques were hard to learn and at times it seemed an impossible task to acquire the enough technical skills not to inhibit my creativity but not to become so bogged down in technique that the work would become static and lifeless. I loved the energy of glass.
On finishing my degree I went to the heart of the British glass industry, Dudley near Stourbridge in the Midlands. Here I did a traditional course on glass making which gave me my own skills that I needed to really start making my own work. In 1984 I had finished my education and knew I wanted my own studio but I had no experience so I spent the next three years working in as many studios around the country that I could. This was invaluable as life is very different outside the safety of college.”
