Olwen Thomas In The Spotlight

September’s Spotlight shines on the ceramic work of Olwen Thomas who has been a member of the gallery for over 4 years. Since graduating 5 years ago, Olwen has established herself as a maker of high quality, hand-built porcelain ceramics inspired by traditional Welsh blankets using a slab built, monoprinting technique. Alongside this body of work, she also produces sculptural vessels inspired by her memories of the slate quarries of North Wales.  Olwen enjoys using a variety of ceramics techniques including figurative sculpture and thrown work. This showcase is a collection which displays a variety of her past and present work.

“I love using different making techniques in my work and feel that exploring new and revisiting previous kinds of work keeps my ideas fresh and feeds my enthusiasm for ceramics.” 

Featured Artist Matt Pearce


Matt Pearce is a recent graduate from the University of Creative Arts and joined the gallery in 2015. Matt is a figurative painter working predominantly in acrylic and on highly textured surfaces. His current work is concerned with body art and the human condition.
