"A Celebration of Nature by the Transformation of Clay by Fire"
"Jermyn makes beautifully judged organic forms categorised under two headings, Pods and Standing. They resemble, without illustrating, various plant shapes and textures, though they are related to non-organic processes that generate the intricate patterns of the natural world. So her work spans the geological and the organic in its range of reference, without being a depiction of any single aspect of that continuum. There is something elemental and fundamental about her pieces, though, a feeling of rightness and inevitability. She is exceptionally attentive to nuances of tone, colour and texture as well as shape, and seems to have an unerring instinct for sculptural form. ...Her Pods enclose spaces in a gentle, caressing way, imbuing them with a sense of generative potential."

A short film about my exhibition "Clay Journeys - Pots & Snapshots" at the Courthouse, Tinahley, Co Wicklow as part of the 20th Anniversary celebrations in 2016. I had been involved for many years as Secretary of the Restoration Committee, so it was lovely to be back there in a completely different capacity
9th International Symposium Exhibition
In 2020 the Changchun Symposium in China became an exhibition rather than a symposium due to Covid-19. I was delighted to be selected, at least my ceramics could travel!
The invitation for my solo exhibition at The Courthouse Arts Centre in Tinahely Co Wicklow - the centre was celebrating 20 years. I had been very involved in saving the building in the 1980's and early '90's. It was lovely to be back there as part of the celebrations. This was my 3rd exhibition there - the first in 2000 was with British wood-fire potter, Nic Collins and the second in 2005 "Relative Space' with my daughter painter, Sarah Browne.
