Jane Burbidge completed a 12 month course at TAFE in 1997, gaining a Certificate I and II in Art practice. Encouraged by her teacher, she continued with further studies, attending the University of South Australia from 1998-2000 and graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Arts in ceramics and glass.
In 2001, Jane was selected to take part in the JamFactory’s two year design associate programme. Remaining at the JamFactory for a further two years as a tenant, she became the ceramic department's production thrower, which continued until early 2011 when the production lines were discontinued.
During 2004, Jane set up her home studio in Echunga, which is situated on the overlap of the Adelaide hills and Fleureau Peninsula, from where she works full time as a dedicated arts practitioner in her chosen field of ceramics.
Jane draws inspiration from colours, textures and patterns from within nature, the natural environment and from the effects that nature has on manmade items. Jane’s work is influenced by a long interest in archaeology and paleontology and the strata layers in which the remaining shards, remnants and artifacts have been encased.
