Jade Paton

Jade Paton is a Cape Town potter and ceramicist. She first began experimenting with clay in 2018 and has since established herself as a creator of functional, contemporary clay sculptures and vessels. Jade graduated from Michaelis School of Fine Art in 2013 and has explored various mediums throughout her artistic career. 

Her works are inspired by ancient vessels as well as forms found in nature, architecture, design, and contemporary art. Jade states that her approach is “instinctual rather than cerebral… It has to feel right – the proportions, textures and color have to work in harmony. I don’t force anything.”
