Tess Ainley Gallery: ‘Sea of Bottles’ New Series of ceramic work by Tamlin Lundberg
Holt, Norfolk – April 2017
‘Sea of Bottles’ is the latest series of ceramics to be introduced to Tess Ainley Gallery. This body of work, by Tamlin Lundberg, follows the huge success of her original ‘Flint and Chalk Series.’
Tamlin is a local artist, based in Norwich, currently working in ceramics and drawing. Each of her handmade pieces are created in response to her surroundings and experiences in the natural world. Through walking the landscape, collecting objects and stories, fragments and memories, Tamlin attempts to capture traces of these small exchanges with the environment.
This series is based around walks along the North Norfolk coast, responding to the physicality of landscape, the geology, the North Sea and the weather. Tamlin says ‘bottles and jars are used to preserve and store and as human beings, we also retain and absorb, both a sense of place and an essence of our experience. These accumulations shape our identity.’
