Gale Lewis a Coleg Sir Gar ceramic graduate is showcasing her work at New Designers at the Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street N1, London between 27th & 30th June.
Gale creates both ceramic vessels and photographic images that respond and capture the West Wales coast. The work is often fired on the beach using flotsam and jetsam as both inspiration and material to fuel the primitive firing method.

‘My current work is inspired by a series of meditative walks, during which I observe and contemplate my natural surroundings and how we as people interact with them. Considering not only the physical but also the philosophical nature of life. The vessels draw these concepts, thoughts and discoveries together. Natural, recycled and man-made materials are used in combination to demonstrate the potential for harmony and beauty in our relationship with our surroundings. The work is about mindfulness and taking the time to think deeply, each vessel is designed as container or sanctuary for one’s thoughts.’
