Lena Peters − Saints and Spirits

Storytelling and ceramics have been linked together for centuries in every part of the world. From the vases of ancient Greece, to the pottery of the Mayans, throughout China, Persia and Japan – over a period of 3,000 years – up to today and the work of Grayson Perry.

Now, a new maker and story-teller Lena Peters has evolved a type of narrative where a story is interwoven with ceramic pieces to create something captured in time, which is part based on research, part on fact and sometimes so blurred at the edges it is hard to tell what is real.
