ROSL Arts present a purchased work from the department of Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art to the winner of the Annual Music Competition's Overseas Award.
In 2018 Alexander McFarlane viola was presented an artwork (pictured below) by Ceramacist Judy McKenzie.
Judy creates unique ceramic objects using the processes of Nerikomi and Kintsugi. Nerikomi focuses the attention on the porcelain clay, coloured with stains and oxides to create patterns. Kintsugi, embraces imperfections. Her fascination with the techniques is not only that the clay and pattern combine to become a material, but also, the true character of the clay is exploited. When manipulated, the plasticity of the clay encourages movement, forming naturally soft lines which appear to drift in and out of focus within the designs. The Kintsugi becomes a precious scar, reminding us that there is strength and beauty in the fragility of life.
