Desert Sand Textured Toast Clay Sculpture - an objet inspired by the past for the future
400 x 370 x 160mm
APERTURE OF ILLUSION: The Source, or 'eye of the universe' - shown as a void with graphic lines radiating from it - represents that intangible moment an idea is born. The sculptures look to the future but connect to the past and question the divide between illusion and reality. Organic, egg-like forms surround an aperture that radiates energy, creating illusion of time, space and energy in a physical form.
Exhibiting as a part of the Tigmi Art Series Group Ceramics Show, exclusive to Tigmi.
Jan Vogelpoel has donated a piece to the Clay For Community Raffle, supporting the Flood Relief fund in community-led flood relief across the Northern Rivers NSW. 100% of money donated to the Flood Relief Fund. Tickets $30 here.
About the artist: Combining a mid-century design aesthetic with a contemporary minimalist approach, Jan Vogelpeol's intuitive and fervent process produces ceramic sculptures that hold an etherial presence in any space, effortlessly reflecting connection, fluidity and strength. Each piece carries the energy of nature and the maker, and the characteristic raw finish of her work makes them highly tactile, recalling the textures of sandstone cliffs or ancient artifacts.
Born in the UK and raised in South Africa, Melbourne-based Vogelpoel has worked with clay for over 20 years, honing her skills under South African ceramicist artists Barbara Jackson and Karen Scott. Her work has been shortlisted for the Victorian
Crafts Awards (2019) and The Design Files + Laminex Awards (2021) with her works now widely collected in Australia and internationally.
