Jessica Colebrooke (nee. Maycock)
An established Bahamian ceramicist, Colebrooke has produced a robust line of fine art pottery, tile murals, and sculptures along with her signature superbly authentic souvenirs and tableware line and whimsical teapots.
Colebrooke's evolving ceramic art career began over 25 years ago with her work emphasizing her love and interest in the botanical and marine ecosystems. This is partly as a result of Jessica’s influence by her mom and her dad. Her father is a taxidermist who would eat his catch and then preserve the carcasses of those sea creatures like sea crabs, crawfish, and barracuda and put them up for sale. Her mom (deceased) was a dedicated florist who loved making floral arrangements, painting flowers, and gardening.
Motifs of marine and botanical scenery are constantly intertwined in the theme in Colebrooke’s ceramic work and are clearly exhibited in her work.
Colebrooke has exhibited both locally and internationally, and her work can be found in remarkably prestigious collections in the USA, China, Africa, and Britain.
