Jan Goodey is a British maker living in Cumbria working across Ceramics, Sculpture and Jewellery.
A curiosity about materials and process are at the heart of Jan's work which is often labour intensive and intricate. Each piece involves hours of work and is made from a mixture of media ranging from clay, copper, iron, gold, and lead, to paper, steel and/or silver chosen for their contrasting properties and colours.
Inspiration for the work comes from an interest in a variety of fields; the natural world, geology, archaeology, psychology, microscopy, and intimate landscapes amongst others.
Initially trained and working as a goldsmith, Jan combined these skills with teaching at The University of Cumbria (formerly Carlisle School of Art) as Leader of the Foundation Studies Course for many years. Later, she contributed to the BA and MA in Contemporary Applied Arts. Throughout this time her research practice continued and was exhibited widely.
