Artist Notes:
Lowri Davies was brought up in Aberystwyth, graduated from the Cardiff Art School in 2001 and was awarded the National Eisteddfod Young Artist Scholarship.Her ceramic compositions are inspired by a wide ranging collection left by her grandmother and generally deal with self-identity and Welshness. She uses hand build techniques and slip casting, with decorations based on her personal pictures. This collection, which comprises the National Eisteddfod Purchase Prize for 2005, has two components. The first – the ‘Stereotype Collection’, is a series of Welsh ladies in traditional dress in domestic surroundings – in the kitchen,teatime, playing the harp, looking at a dresser, looking at bardic robes, singing in a choir. The second collection is a selection of souvenir inspired objects based on findings in the souvenir shops of Eryri and is rich in iconography.
