Jane Ponsford

Artist and papermaker

Esher, Surrey


Papermaking, materiality, landscape


£25 — £2287


Paper can be seen as the traditional material to record the world around us. It collects marks and traces and catches light and casts shadows. It is this responsive quality which attracts Jane Ponsford to paper-making. Much of her work is made in response to walking through specific landscapes and in relation to particular places and the materials found there. She uses mainly cotton and linen pulps to make sculptural installations, objects and book-works.
