Lost Connections

Sharing the stories of lockdown, through the hearts and hands of the community

Llantarnam Grange is thrilled to announce an exhibition organised by Naz Syed, celebrating and showcasing the creativity of the people of south Wales throughout lockdown, which opens at Llantarnam Grange, Cwmbran, 3 July 2021.

In these strange times, the human connections that we thrive on, are missing. Telling the stories of the community is so important – of hope, isolation, worries, memories, things that we hold close to us. What are we holding onto? What will we take forward from all of this?

Craft Showcase

24 April 2021 until 19 June 2021

"My artistic practice stems from my admiration of perfection, symmetry and order. I take raw clay and explore the materiality, pushing it to the limits on the potter's wheel and creating highly decorated surfaces. My inspiration comes from naturally occurring patterns such as the inside of a flower, coral and sea life. The visual impact of my work is of great significance, I create sculptures that evoke a reaction in the viewer through their precision and texture.

It is of great importance to my practice that every piece I make is an individually made, unique, one-of-a-kind treasure. Therefore, each form is thrown on the potter's wheel, turned, and hand decorated. I explore highly decorated surfaces using a process called slip trailing to build up spherical patterns on sculptural forms. Slip is a mixture of clay and water, and at the right consistency it can be piped like icing using slip trailer tool. The slip dots add a textured element to the surface, which extends the art form from just a visual experience. Each pattern is applied freehand, with individually piped dots."
