Jane Smith grew up in the Midlands and was a student at Dartington College of Art. Subsequently she obtained a BA (Hons) in Ceramics and Glass from Birmingham City University. She has been working with clay since the age of ten. She spent 25 years as a teacher of glass and ceramics but currently works full-time as an artist, while running her own business, Jane Smith Glass.
Her work is sold through several galleries including Cornwall Crafts Association, Trelissick and Trelowarren, and the Poly Guild in Falmouth. She undertakes both private and public commissions. Smith says 'My work is now heavily influenced by the dynamic landscape of Cornwall and my passion for the patterns formed in the natural and man-made environment.'
