Jo is a London-based sculptor working in clay. Prior to retraining at Central St Martins as a Ceramicist she worked for over 10 years as a PR and ran her own PR consultancy specialising in promoting architects and projects in the built environment.
Jo’s current artistic practice focuses on making figurative work and animating portraiture, as well as how to create public engagement with clay practice. She coils and slab builds her sculptures and has recently been grappling with questions about relevancy and what is it to be human in a Digital Age. Jo is determined to incorporate ecological considerations in her practice, choosing to low-fire her glazed work, using stop frame animation and where appropriate deliberately leave the work un-fired.
