Shipwrecked is a new exhibition at Jane James Studio & Gallery at 20 Commercial Buildings, St Helier, JE2 3NB. The exhibition that coincides with the 10 year anniversary of Jane James Ceramics centres around a 22ft classic sailing yacht called 'Ranzo' that had come to the end of its sailing life and was due to be sent to the incinerator. Jane who prides herself on using recycled wood, has dismantled the yacht to make the perfect canvas for her ceramics. She has created around 40 pieces of exciting new coastal artwork using every part of the yacht.
During the process she has also researched the history of the vessel and the exhibition is both a celebration of her work and of the workmanship and much joy this boat has given local family’s whilst sailing in the waters off Jersey for the past 80 years.
The gallery is open 9.30 - 4pm Mon - Sat
