Thrashion

Thrashion

23 May 2015 until 25 July 2015

Thrashion is run by skater Nat who creates jewellery and accessories from skateboards, used in their original state incorporating every scratch and ding to represent the character of the deck. “Being skaters we know that skateboards are not just a toy and we take great care to produce high end products that befit the life of the broken board. We only use broken or used skateboards and where the board has come from is part of each product. The decks and wheels are used in their original state and apart from being cut, sanded and finished materials and waste is kept to a minimum.”

Jelka Quintelier

28 March 2015 until 09 May 2018

By fusing jewellery and product design, fashion and illustration Jelka Quintelier work’s questions adornment, wearability and how we relate to objects and materials. Inspired by the patterns and striking scenes she captures with her camera, she translate these into paper cut-outs that form the basis for her digital drawings. The pieces are then laser cut from EPDM, an industrial roofing rubber and Neoprene, the wetsuit material to create captivating, easy to wear adornment that plays an interesting game between the 2D and 3D world

Sue Binns

The seemingly endless combinations of stripes that dominate Sue’s work are produced by brushing dilute cobalt over the dolomite glaze and are carefully chosen to suit each individual piece. Her inspiration comes from Mediterranean pottery, Japanese fabrics and ceramics but mainly from 1950s Rye Pottery which was around in my home when she was growing up. Although now with the bigger pieces, Bridget Riley occasionally springs to mind.

John Selway’s fifty years of painting the Peninsula

23 March 2015 until 09 May 2015

Part of a golden generation at the Royal College of Art that included the fledgling Pop Art luminaries Derek Boshier, David Hockney, Alan Jones, R. B. Kitaj and Barry Bates – John Selway immediately set about pursuing his own artistic agenda. Always working from memory, he has often ventured far and wide in search of suitable subject matter. An influential tutor at both Newport and Carmarthen Art Colleges, whether flirting with abstraction, drawing inspiration from literature or responding to a landscape, his primary concern still remains as always, the human condition.

Makers Xchange

Makers Xchange

31 January 2015 until 14 March 2015

‘MakersXchange’ is a new initiative where Venues and Makers Guilds from across Wales and the South West are coupled to exchange and present the work of makers they regularly show or represent. LGAC has linked with the Devon Guild of Craftsmen and we will be presenting the work of ceramicist Pauline Zelinski. In her recent work Pauline has been developing ideas through the use of underglaze colours. Each piece is made from white earthenware clay, underglaze colours are mixed and hand painted onto each piece before biscuit firing. Careful mixing and patient building up of the colours produces vibrant tones and hues, and the final glazing and firing reveals their full intensity. Pauline is based in Exeter, Devon.

31 January 2015 until 14 March 2015

Emily is a mixed media jeweller who currently works with wood, laminate and silver. She uses techniques such as piercing, sanding, waxing, riveting and soldering, with each piece a development of the one before. Initial ideas from plants, buildings, repetition, pattern and colour are drawn in her sketchbook they then develop intuitively as Emily works with the materials. Originally from Hereford, Emily studied at the University of Brighton and is now based in London.
