Jill Moger

Elected to the SWLA in 1999, Jill held the posts of Honorary Secretary, Newsletter Editor and Council Member over many years. She was also elected to the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers (RMS) in 2009 holding the post of Vice President until 2013.

Jill won the Terravesta award for the most outstanding work in the Natural Eye exhibition in 2018 for her two-metre high ceramic hydrothermal vent. The Society of Women Artists President’s and Vice Presidents’ award, the Bidder and Bourne award for sculpture and the Gold Bowl honourable mention are among the many awards that she has received for her work over the years.

Jill is best known for her life-sized ceramic sculptures of reptiles and amphibians. In recent years she has added marine life and insects to her main body of interest. She likes to depict the wildlife on an appropriate base to give a sense of their habitat. Her high-fired porcelain and stoneware work is highly detailed, coloured and glazed with added lustres.
