"...Jane Abbott's approach to her work...is honest, forthright and modest. But she has also hit an uncanny nerve with her artful, unproblematic wares, and has consistently sold well, whether working in the vessel form, or in the production of jewellery or more sculptural pieces.
She does not rest on the laurels of past success; she does use her teaching to lead her to deliver new ideas, and finds in this work the proper balance of creativity. Teaching is a creative process for her, not a necessary chore." Professor Simon Oldin
