Lowri Davies – Printmaker in Focus

plus New Printmaking 2 December 2023 – 21 January 2024

Lowri Davies

Well known for her work in bone china and porcelain, Lowri Davies was commissioned by Ruthin Craft Centre to make a small series of prints in anticipation of her solo show in 2025. The fine line drawings and motifs which exquisitely decorate her cups, jugs and vases are here translated into etchings. Lowri grew up in Aberystwyth and now works at Fireworks Clay Studios in Cardiff and her Welsh heritage is often the source of her imagery.

New Printmaking

Alongside Lowri Davies’s work will be a group of recent graduates from across Wales who demonstrate some of the innovative ways printmaking is evolving. The artists include Daisy Buckle, Erin Donnelly and Rebecca Jones, Petra Goetze, Sarah Grossey, Hannah Henson, Esyllt Lewis, Basil Heath Lucock and Amber Mottram. Their varied work includes printing on ceramics and textiles as well as drawing on their different experiences and ways of working.
