Born in London in 1964 Jacquard trained briefly as a furniture designer before switching to ceramics and glass under Sam Herman at High Wycombe.
Jacquard has established a reputation for innovation, both in technique and conception, that makes his work distinctive and unique. Narratives are woven in and around objects often transforming the familiar or ‘found’ into strange and unsettling realities using the glassy state as both aesthetic and metaphor. His style combines personal stories with diverse cultural references including archaeology, nature, landscape and craft traditions. Kiln-forming is his central technique but the results are extensively cold worked and combined with other media in a rich sculptural language. The scale varies from body sized to hand held but even the smallest items retain the distinctive ghostly beauty to be found in the larger pieces.
