George Jackson

George Jackson has a broad craft base having worked in ceramics, (making both functional and sculptural pieces) glass, where he has developed a very individual approach to the casting process known as Pâte de Verre. He occasionally ventures into fused, stained, and leaded glasswork.

Currently, his prime focus is in ceramics; stoneware and earthenware is produced primarily for domestic items and firing at low temperatures to produce the decorative forms associated with raku and smoke-firing.

Inspiration comes from a multitude of sources; the natural world, historical and contemporary art and craftwork, and from a fascination with serendipitous outcomes achieved through experimentation, (the alchemy of mixing media and blending skills and materials).

Jackson’s background is in art education, where he was Head of a Creative Arts and Technology Faculty.

His work has been exhibited on two occasions in The British Glass Biennale, and also shown in The Glass Sellers Awards, London.
