Jane Mackay has been a "hobby potter" on again and off again for over 25 years.
She has no formal training but has benefitted greatly from local workshops. These workshops presented by the Medicine Hat Potters' Association, the Alberta Potters' Association along with sessions like Series in Red Deer and the Artists in Residence at Medalta have all been wonderful learning opportunities.
Through her small home studio, Jane fires mainly mid range but also explores other methods at other venues.
Jane's work is a mixture of functional and "fun" pieces. She enjoys the effect of piercing through clay and is exceptionally talented at creating some very unique pieces using this method.
