Her current body of work includes low-fired decorated earthenware that is wheel-thrown or slab-built. Each piece is individually trimmed to size, carved, incised, decorated and glazed. Her inspiration is drawn from the love of cooking, nature and her Asian roots. She is also inspired by creating pieces of functional ceramic art for the home, kitchen and garden. She sees her work as a constant evolution and exploration, and she enjoys the process that comes with the creation of each piece, from inception of an idea to its completion.
Jackie is grateful to her family and friends for the constant support they have provided her over the years. It is through their strength that she draws inspiration and is motivated to pursue her love of creation.
