Clay is a material which has been with us since the dawn of time. It functions not just as a physical material but as a storyteller. Lena’s imagination and poetic narrative is derived from classical archaeology

Once the characters are created, Lena’s vases are coiled, and then shaped, with hand painted images in underglaze before firing takes place.

‘Clay in its simplest form can be used by everyone, from the professional to the amateur, and so it presents an opportunity to express social, political and personal narratives in a variety of ways.’
