According to Jana:
I began life as a painter and have slowly evolved into a sculptor, employing clay and bronze. My currently displayed work is mostly ceramic sculpture. I have grown particularly fond of the rough and unpredictable earthy effects created by ash deposits and microclimates within the large fire-breathing dragon of a kiln we use for week-long Anagama Japanese-style wood-firings. It is a force unto itself, beautiful and primal and the work that comes from the kiln is a reflection of that ancient process.
