JANE D'HAENE Ceramicist + Co-Founder
Jane D’Haene’s works are inspired by the tradition of Korean ceramics and forms from the natural world. She works on one of a kind, hand-built vessels and experiential sculptural objects. Whether wheel-thrown or hand-built, each piece is carefully and patiently crafted. Her works are known as an unconventional play of clay, combining traditional and contemporary methods.
“I love the feel of clay in my hands and the places it takes me…”
D’Haene, originally from South Korea, currently lives with her husband and three children in Brooklyn, New York.
