Jane King is a ceramic artist who received her MA in Ceramics from Bath Spa University in 2012.
“Since 2013, my work has been exhibited widely in the UK and internationally. I was awarded the Medal of the President of the Italian Senate in the 2013 iteration of the International Prize for Contemporary Ceramics, Faenza, Italy, and my work was featured in the international ceramics magazine La Ceramica in Italia e Nel Mondo in June of that year. My work has since been shortlisted for several other national and international prizes, including: the inaugural Craft Emergency Award (Aspex, Portsmouth UK, 2013), the inaugural Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize (London, UK, 2014); the inaugural Carter Preston Prize (Liverpool, UK, 2016), the Annex Collection Acquisition Award (London, UK, 2017) and the European Prize for Applied Art (Mons, Belgium and Kilkenny, Ireland, 2018-19).
My work has been exhibited in both fine art and applied arts contexts. I had my first solo show ‘Incident!’ at the National Centre for Craft and Design, Sleaford, UK in 2015, and I recently exhibited 5 works in MK Calling at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes, UK, showcasing ‘the most dynamic work being made in the UK’. A number of my works are held in public and private collections, in the UK, USA and Italy.”
