Jenny Wiggins’ main interests are hand building the figures with the past and present humanity related issues.
Varying textures are applied to enhance the relevant issues. She makes garden totems, in varying shapes and textures, and using bright colours; often experimenting with glazes and textures in both gas and electric kilns. Her hand building figurative work and wheel work is then altered, by experimenting with textures to enhance the concept.
