BIOGRAPHY

Jane B. Grimm is a ceramic sculptor living and working in San Francisco. She was born and raised there. After her schooling on the East Coast where she studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and where she received her AB from Sarah Lawrence College, she started her career as a jewelry designer and manufacturer in New York City. Her jewelry was seen in magazines such as Harper's Bazaar and Vogue and sold in many department stores and boutiques in the United States and Europe.

While still living on the East Coast, Jane started working with clay in the early 70's. She also taught jewelry making while she began raising her family. Upon returning to San Francisco, she continued to make jewelry but embarked on a more intensive study of clay. In 1992, she received her MFA in Ceramics with High Distinction from the California College of Arts and Crafts, having studied with Viola Frey and Art Nelson. Her sculpture has been on display nationally in a variety of venues including museums, galleries and alternative spaces. She also has produced art for corporate buildings.
