Jan Jacque

Using Scottish inspired trail or summit markers, known as Carins, potter, Jan Jacques has created a line of beautiful and interesting lamps. The seemingly precarious stacked clay stones she makes, create a playful earthy base. Topped with faux leather shades, these lamps make a statement in most any environment. All stones are hand built from fine textured white clay. Jacques then scrapes and sands each piece until they are smooth. The next step is to airbrush the stones with earth tone colorants which are then pit fired. The process provides the artist with a rich trove which she then carefully crafts into the beautiful lamps that are available today.
