I lived in the US for a year when I was a child and that is when I first learnt about racial inequality. As a student studying in Manchester, I joined the Anti-Apartheid movement and regularly took buses down to London to attend rallies. Rosa Parks was named the ‘mother of the freedom movement’ many years earlier and to me, has remained an iconic figure representing racial equality. Her courageous act of refusing to give up her seat on a bus for a white man got her arrested. A bold reminder of how hard times were then but sadly, also a reminder that racial inequality still exists now.
Jane Foster is a Devon based artist, author, designer & illustrator and one of Keith Brymer Jones‘ first collaborators. They have been working together to create glassware, textiles & ceramics for many years. In the course of her career as an award winning illustrator, textile designer and author, Jane Foster has had over 30 books published and collaborated with major brands including Habitat, Ikea, Aldi & The Art Group. Her bold and cute designs feature on a wide range of products from raincoats to cushions as well as prints and, of course, ceramics and glassware. Keith’s collaboration with Jane has resulted in beautiful contemporary ceramics with clean Scandi tinged designs
