Jaime Jenkins is a Mt Maunganui based maker, her spontaneous and sensitive approach to form and finish makes each piece wholly unique.
"All my work is stoneware, I use a mix of clays including clay dug from a friends bank and also I mix river sand I’ve collected from various favourite water holes or camp spots I visit over the summer months. I make all my own glazes and every firing will experiment with new ones. I use a mouth blown atomiser to spray the glazes on slowly layering the glazes. Every kiln opening has new surprises."
