Featured Maker: Rose Teleri

Our Featured Maker during April and May 2019 is Rose Teleri.

Rose Teleri is a jeweller and artist living in Pembrokeshire. Rose uses silver to explore the forms and textures found in the costal landscape she lives in. She works with recycled silver and avoids chemicals as much as possible. Rose utilises the heating process to create interesting patinas and works with the unpredictable outcomes. She treats the silver as a painter treats the canvas, each hammer mark or file scratch creates layers to a piece that is not to be hidden or apologetically polished out, it creates a history that is true to the material and true to her vision.

All work is for sale. Collectorplan (interest free purchase scheme) is available.

Featured Maker: Ingrid Murphy

Our Featured Maker during February and March 2019 is Ingrid Murphy.

 ‘Ingrid Murphy plays with the conventions of ceramic practice. Her works invite shared experience rather than purely aesthetic contemplation.’ Martina Margetts.

Connectivity is crucial to Ingrid Murphy, between people and places and across time. Her explorations provoke and surprise us as she marries traditional ceramic processes with creative technologies. Be it the view from inside a teapot or the sounds from the streets of Jaipur, her pieces connect us to different perspectives and stories. Seen and unseen is a witty expansion of the languages and qualities of clay. Ceri Jones, The Language of Clay series curator.
