Conversations with Objects

By Julia Griffiths Jones

March 9th to May 4th 2024

New work on enamel and paper

‘During the winter of 2021 – 22 I began a series of drawings about the kitchen in Llanerchaeron, a National Trust property not far from the Welsh Quilt Centre. I have always found domestic spaces inspiring, and in 2017 I won the gold medal for Craft and Design at the National Eisteddfod of Wales for Room within a Room, a kitchen made in wire.

Recently I was drawing in Rembrandt’s house in Amsterdam, and his kitchen and studio contained some fascinating objects from his vast collection of artifacts. I was not expecting to see an even larger collection of objects – 71,000 to be exact, on display in Rokin metro station, which had been dug up from the river Amstel   collected and arranged beautifully as you descend the escalators to the platform.

For this exhibition I have drawn the shards and fragments from the haul and printed them onto my favourite objects from Llanerchaeron and Amsterdam using both enamel and paper surfaces to create new patterns and meanings.’
