Lena Peters Ceramics and Storytelling

December 3, 2018

Last years UK Young Artist of the Year Award winner Lena Peters, has combined her love of ceramics with storytelling. She cleverly interweaves her passion for history and nature. These elements merge with her interest in folklore and mythology making her work dance between the real and the unreal, creating illustrative objects which work to embody a narrative.

There’s a wonderful interview over on Melody Vaughn’s site and it’s well worth a read

Lena’s has a fascination with the British Museum and grew up near Sheffield in the Peak District, surrounded by tales of magic and woodland sprites. You can see where her interest in creating her ceramic creatures has come from.

I love the coiled pots and bold imagery that has been formed by scraping away one layer of coloured slip to reveal the colour beneath.

There’s an exhibition on of Lena’s work called ‘Saints and Spirits’ between 21st November – 21st December 2018 at the David Gill Gallery, 2-4 King Street, London, SW1Y 6QP. Drop in and enjoy.

      Hi Alison, thanks for your message. If you click on her name in my post it takes you to Lena’s website and a contact email. That’s probably your best bet. Please let her know that you saw her work on Fishink Blog. Thanks Craig
