Artist’s Talk

with Lucy Donald

'Mokuhanga Inspired Woodcuts based on
Welsh Pottery with a Welsh Pop Culture Twist'

29 May 2024

"I am a painter, printmaker, sculptor and teacher. I am a free-lance Education Co-ordinator at Elysium Gallery and also work with other venues in Swansea providing art workshops for all ages and abilities.

I have used Cambrian, Llanelli and Nantgarw pottery as a starting point for series of watercolours and woodcuts. This work examines the fashion of Chinoiserie and appropriation of designs from other cultures to create fantasy lands depicted on domestic ware.

During my Hafod Studio residency I plan to make work based on Portmeirion pottery".

This talk is part of the Hafod residency series, in collaboration with Noelle Griffiths.
