Jane Reumert (1942 - 2016) is a Danish ceramist. Reumert was born in Gentofte, Denmark, and worked as a professional ceramist since the 1960s. Reumert's influences range from nature to calligraphy. She has stated that she was interested in nature and especially birds from her early youth. Those motives are found in her work of the 2000s. She uses European and Asian calligraphic lettering styles.


In the late 1980s Reumert began working on porcelain and made thin salt glazed vessels, fired to 1330 °C. In the early 1990s, she experimented with adding fiberglass and other fibers to her clay, allowing thinner forms. She often displays her work on wire tripods to create the illusion of floating. In 1994, Reumert was awarded the Torsten and Wanja Soderberg Nordic Design Prize. In 2011, she took part in the Nordic Woodfire Marathon, and was a guest artist at the International Ceramic Research Centre in Denmark.
