About the work:
Reach for the Stars in Black Scarva Clay by Jan Vogelpoel.
Jan Vogelpoel’s works, particularly the texture and finish, are inspired by the incredible concrete murals of William Mitchell and the design inspiration from the large scale sculpture work of Alexander Calder and Lynn Chadwick. This original artwork is one of a kind.
‘The process of building a sculpture is tangible and permanent,’ says Vogelpoel.
About the Artist:
Melbourne based Jan Vogelpoel hand builds one-off sculptural pieces that reflect her love of organic shapes and graphic lines. Vogelpoel has worked with clay for over 20 years, honing her skills under the direction of famed Capetonian ceramicist Barbara Jackson and teacher Karen Scott. Vogelpoel’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.
