About the work:

Misfit III in White Sculpture Clay by Jan Vogelpoel.

This piece is part of Talismans, Rafts, Mementosa group exhibition showcasing the work of the entire community of Modern Times artists. Throughout 2020 artists used their practice to make sense of what was happening, and this show celebrates this rich vein of creative output.

“A subconscious reaction to feeling uncomfortable during uncertain times has inspired 
the experimentation of these peculiar forms – a gang of ghostly misfits challenging the comfort of our usual design aesthetic and creating a feeling of awkward tension,” says Jan.

About the Artist:

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, honing her skills under the direction of famed Capetonian ceramicist Barbara Jackson and teacher Karen Scott. Jan’s 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.
