There is still time to catch Jan Lewin-Cadogan’s intriguing and unusual ceramic pieces at the Oriel Q, Queens Hall Gallery, Narberth.
Inspired by the natural world, Jan is one of Wales’ finest up-and-coming artists and this exhibition showcases some of her new work.
Jan said: “This exhibition represents my interpretation of microscopic images of seeds. Using those images as my starting point, I have created unique, curious and sometimes whimsical forms that developed as I worked. It was a constant delight to watch them grow, each hinting at the beauty, intricacy and mystery of the world around us.
“I’m delighted to be able to show my work at the Queens Hall Gallery and I hope that visitors will be inspired by the pieces and wonder what other fantastic forms exist in nature that perhaps they can’t see.”
Jan’s latest pieces are hand-built using glazed white stoneware and are already attracting significant attention. The forms she has created reflect intimate details of nature that are invisible to the naked eye.
Jan is best known for her delicate porcelain work and sculptural forms.
She added: “My influences and inspiration come from my observations of the natural world. I enjoy experimenting and often allow my own ideas to work alongside nature’s dramatic designs. This lets me create really original designs.”
