Summer Showcase - Olwen Thomas

(June 08, 2015)

Olwen 3‘In the Window’ - Summer Showcase

Featuring Ceramics by Olwen Thomas

19th June 2015 - 18th September 2015

Discovered at New Designers 2014 - Carmarthenshire based Ceramacist Olwen Thomas will be exhibiting a stunning collection of her beautiful and functional vessels.

The Collection which in essence celebrates the role of our foremothers is entitled ‘Hen Wlad Fy Mamau’ ‘Land of my Mothers’ (a twist on the Welsh national anthem ‘Land of my Fathers’) and is heavily influenced by traditional welsh woven textiles referencing strikingly colourful iconic blankets and shawls. 

‘The patterns are painted directly onto the porcelain paperclay using coloured slips before being hand built into vessels which involves wrapping clay, rather like a blanket.’
