A new exhibition called ‘Shipwrecked’ opens this weekend at Jane James Studio & Gallery at 20 Commercial Buildings, St Helier.

The exhibition that coincides with the 10 year anniversary of Genuine Jersey Member Jane James Ceramics centres around a 22ft classic sailing yacht called ‘Ranzo’ that had come to the end of its sailing life and was destined for the incinerator. Jane who prides herself on using recycled wood in her ceramics creations has dismantled the yacht and created 40 pieces of exciting new work using every part of the wooden yacht. 

During the process she has also researched the history of the vessel and the exhibition is both a celebration of her work and of the workmanship and much joy this boat has given local family’s whilst sailing in the waters off Jersey for the past 80 years. 

The exhibition opens this Saturday, 20th July and is on until 21st September. The gallery is open 9.30 - 4pm Mon - Sat
