Born in 1947 in Liege, Belgium, Jacqueline Poncelet now lives and works in London.
She is well-known for her early work in bone china, and for her more sculptural works in ceramics after 1980. From the mid 80s she extended her practice to include painting, sculpture, installation and public art commissions. Poncelet said: “My personal passion is for pattern and colour. I do not have a minimalist aesthetic. I believe that complexity can enrich our lives but should not overwhelm us.”
