The fantastic Sussie Ahlburg has come through with fantastic images of my Llyr Lewis pots. I think this one is my favourite – the line in the poem is:
“Ond a’r ewyn yn llyn llaeth”
“But with the foam as still as milk”
I love the way Llyr Lewis has written it in English as well as Welsh.
Some of the images are less about thw words, more about texture, like this one, with even the word – “the sand” being a texture. The line is:
“Ewyn wy’n cydio’r tywod”
“I am the foam holding onto the sand”
Sussie’s also got a great new group shot for me. I often have to persuade people through images before they get to see and handle the pots, which is difficult with groups of pots, where the spacial relationships are important. So I’m particularly grateful for this great shot.
These are gorgeous! Are they going out somewhere I would love to see them?!
Clare – I’m applying to a couple of competitions with these, one ‘Poetry in Art’, the Adrien Henri prize; the other the Eisteddfod in Wales – I’ll post in the blog if I get them in to either. I’ll also be showin them at Dulwich Festival Artist’s Open House in May – again, there’ll be more on here about this in April. So glad you like them though.
Thanks! Good luck with it all, they are so beautiful, I will look out for news! Clare x
I love these pots (and the great pics), particularly the dark band at the base of the volcanic section
Thanks Jane – the darkness is from the inside of the holes, I like that it’s just a ‘natural’ part of the glaze….
