The Ceramic House

J Kay Aplin – Architectural Ceramics

In my work, I like to tell stories using symbols which are universal. As you look at one of my pieces, you could tell your own story and would interpret what you see in your own individual way. Each work in the series is created to evoke different moods and emotions.

I am exploring abstract appropriated images from our culture and translating these onto the surface of my work. I feel that they address or allude to specific ideals that interest me.

By working with ceramics and using colour, it is my hope to marry the beautiful form with imagery that subtly informs or confronts the viewer to think about a larger issue – to ignite the thought provoking process. It is my goal to address people’s ideals and thoughts about what is beautiful and to try and encourage the viewer to investigate and hopefully question or think about issues that are taking place all around us.
