Pottery in Cambridge
Jennifer Lee is from Aberdeenshire in Scotland. She trained in ceramics at the Edinburgh College of Arts and the Royal College of Arts. Her works are influenced by ancient pottery, particularly that of Native American cultures and ancient Egypt. Many of her pots are unglazed and she typically begins with a pinch pot to which coils of clay are gradually added. As you can see, her pots feature beautiful subdued colours and intriguing shapes. The exhibition, curated by Sarah Griffin of Kettle's Yard, brought together pots from all eras of Lee's work and included a short video of Lee working in her studio:
Hats off to Kettle's Yard (https://www.kettlesyard.co.uk/) for an interesting exhibition that demonstrates the vibrant world of modern pottery.
...and as promised, a couple of cheery images from Panoply activities over the summer...
