The collection

Lowri’s work stems from references of china displays on Welsh dressers, collections of souvenirs and vibrant illustrations of birds drawn from Victorian taxidermy collections. These objects and images often refer to a sense of place by reviving iconography and symbolism, which have a deep connection to her roots.

Lowri uses Bone China to slip-cast and porcelain to handbuild works. Each piece is fired 5 times: bisque, glaze is applied twice (clear and coloured glazes), decorated with decal application (screen-printed and printed from watercolour and ink drawings). Each piece is finished with platinum or gold lustre.
