Jane Crisp has achieved considerable press coverage with her stunning trugs. Jane's work has featured in Country Living Magazine, Craft and Design Magazine, Country Homes and Interiors, Crafts Magazine, Mollie Makes Magazine & she was selected by the Crafts Council as one of the Hot House 5 and continues to have sell out shows across the UK. Jane works from home in her studio & two small workshops in Hale Fen on the Norfolk Cambridgeshire border.
She believes that functional objects can be elevated; creating heirlooms & longevity in designs we live with everyday. Jane takes inspiration from her local countryside, history, tradition, flora & fauna. She loves the textural & tactile qualities of natural materials like Wool, Wood, Copper, & Leather & Brass.
Jane's designs are made to use & love, amplifying traditional techniques, in a contemporary way experimenting with the mythologies of making.
Her products consist of a small batch of steam-bent Ash vessels or trugs. The inspiration for these practical ‘one off’ pieces comes from Norfolk reeds & the process is inspired by historic boat building techniques. Her trugs are currently featured on the front cover of Craft & Design and in Crafts Magazine.
The Wesley-Barrell Craft Awards judges:
“A refreshingly contemporary take on the classic trug. While the fluid form references the traditional process and materials, Crisp adds an unexpected touch by juxtaposing brass and copper with Ash.”
