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.

Featured Maker selected works are shown in collaboration with Mission Gallery, Swansea – Ingrid Murphy’s solo exhibition Seen and Unseen is part of The Language of Clay series: A Mission Gallery National Touring exhibition.

Featured Maker: Louise Tucker

Our Featured Maker from October – December 2018 is Louise Tucker.

Louise Tucker is a maker studio dedicated to the creation of contemporary woven products.

Inspired by traditional weaving techniques and organic forms, the PREN lighting range has been woven out of sustainably sourced specialist maple wood.  The design is finalised when the organic forms balance with the subtle beauty of the wood to create a refined simplicity, resulting in both a sculptural object and delicate light feature.

Inspired by the shifting patterns of light created by the PREN hand woven lighting range, the Speckle collection has been woven out of 100% merino lambswool to create a delicate texture.

Featured Maker: Peter Bodenham

Our Featured Maker from July – October 2018 is Peter Bodenham.

Peter Bodenham makes functional ceramics that are evocative of the land and seascape they are drawn from. Informing and framing his pots are a range of linked sources, a sense of place and locus, the vernacular, alongside formal design craft concerns. Journeys and mini adventures on foot, often traversing the shoreline, feed the work on a direct level. Local clays, wood and seaweed ashes are incorporated into clay bodies and glazes referencing in the broadest terms the ‘art of enquiry’. Motifs and gestural marks brushed on the pots can be seen as direct traces of his phenomenological experience of a sense of place, where he grew up and continues to live. He trained in Ceramics and 3D in the mid 1980s at Camberwell School of Art. Peter lives and works in the village of St.Dogmaels near Cardigan in West Wales, he works part time as a senior lecturer at Bath Spa University.

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

Featured Maker: Julia Griffiths Jones

Our Featured Maker from April to July 2018 is Carmarthenshire based Julia Griffiths Jones.

Julia Griffiths Jones’ work is primarily concerned with the translation of textile techniques such as stitching, weaving and embroidery into a wire and metal form.

Through a constant practice of drawing the work evolves away from the textile into metalwork, the original function changes but the meaning and decoration are retained. Inspiration is found especially in textile work created by women alongside their domestic duties, an interest that began through Julia’s MA studies at the Royal College of Art in the mid – late 1970’s.

In 1977 Julia won a scholarship to research and study textiles in Poland and Czechoslovakia where she encountered “folk art” for the first time; “…it was everywhere, woven through all aspects of life…” beginning a lifetime’s fascination with folk art objects and motifs and the particular processes and artistic language she has developed from these encounters.

The pieces on show at Oriel Myrddin Gallery are drawings on paper and enamel which have developed from a visit to The Museum of the Romanian Peasant in Bucharest.  Julia says of the work: “The museum attracted me because the objects were exhibited in groups and not in cabinets. It had been curated by an artist on a very small budget, so one room was full of every type of Romanian chair, some very ornately carved and painted, others marked with a simple heart. Much of the imagery from this visit was translated into wire and became the basis of my recent project “Room within a Room” for which I was awarded the Gold Medal for Craft and Design at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in Anglesey in 2017.”

 

You can join Julia Griffiths Jones for a still-life drawing masterclass at Oriel Myrddin Gallery on Saturday 12 May – please call the gallery to book your place – 01267 222775.
