As an experienced potter, Janet Hummerston's work is informed by a passion for and involvement in, the visual arts. She is fascinated with the uniqueness of place and this is evidenced in her use of local clays mixed with Western Australian minerals. The importance of the maker's mark and the strength of the connection of materials to the object stimulates Hummerston's investigations in both domestic and decorative ware. Using combinations of thrown and hand-built techniques to explore the relationships of the object with function and form.
