Black Abstract Relief Tile in Black Scarva Clay by Jan Vogelpoel

Black Abstract Relief Tile in Black Scarva Clay by Jan Vogelpoel.

Melbourne based Jan Vogelpoel hand builds one-off sculptural pieces that reflect her love of organic shapes and graphic lines. Jan has worked with clay for over 20 years; her work reflects her passion for the process of bringing an idea to life through manipulating and building pieces that carry the energy of nature and the maker, which is something she finds both grounding and challenging, but ultimately rewarding.

Inspired by Brutalist and mid century modern architecture, this new abstract relief work is made from a press mould and is an edition of 10. “I am in love with the Bank of Guatemala building complex by Guatemalan painter, sculptor and muralist Roberto González Goyri, which features a relief mural on the west-facing facade,” says Jan.

“For this piece, the clay is pressed into the mould, released and then refined. I work into the clay adding detail, shaping and refining the design. It then takes around two and a half weeks to dry out; it’s quite a long, slow process and requires quite a bit of attention.”
