about

I work in several different media and I do not particularly prioritise any of them. equally important to me are words, fired clay, photography, paper, and textiles. my designs are not about a separate idea for each collection, but an ongoing organic body of work inspired by the world of nature and where possible using the colour from natural plant dyes, making special knits and clothing with cashmere, merino wool, pima cotton and silk, with hand stitching, original cutting, colouring and embroidery. I am experimenting with forms that are romantic and flattering to the female shape, with an elegance that does not especially follow fashion. I prefer my clothes to become heirlooms, with a value that lasts because of the hours of beautiful work that go into them.

    Hi Jane, I feel I have to write! Over my breakfast this wet morning I thought I’d revise umbellifers (hogweed being the bane of my life ) and on googling your excellent piece came up. Thank you very much. But then I noticed your name .many years ago I bought a small wool scarf of your in Norfolk. It became known to my children as Jane Wheeler (I wore it a lot for years and it was liable to hide on occasions – hence the “has anyone seen Jane Wheeler). Some years later an old friend gave me a slab wood fired pot. I loved it and comment immediately that it reminded me of my scarf. And, lo and behold, you had made it too!! I shall look throughout the rest of your site now, over my coffee! Many thanks for years of pleasure and for the umbellifer revision course!
