Luce Center Label

Jane Shellenbarger combines throwing, hand building, and drawing to create functional vessels. She is interested in surface design and will enamel and sandblast the surface of her vessels to achieve texture and depth. Many pieces are fired for up to four continuous days in a wood-burning, anagama-style kiln that allows natural ash glazes to form on the clay.
