White Hart Over Red Heart Plinth

Megan Adams, 2021              

Ceramic sculpture 

Size: W15 x H26 x D15 cm

Megan began this series of works featuring animals atop plinths during lockdown. It is a further development of her netsukes but on a larger scale.

White Hart Over Red Heart was inspired by a medieval panel by Thomas Wylde titled The White Hart which was symbol of Richard II. In English folklore, the white hart has a perennial ability to evade capture, so the pursuit of the animal represents mankind's spiritual quest. This all fit into Megan's theme of ‘new beginnings’ after COVID. The hart is like us right now, with a big chain around his neck. With lockdown, we have all had time to reflect on our lives and how we go forward after, like the spiritual quests of old.

Megan Adams hails from Wyoming, USA and has been a long-time resident of London, UK. During her previous career in film production, she got acquainted with ceramics via evening classes and went on to complete a ceramics degree. While studying, she was encouraged to enter the V&A’s ‘Inspired By’ competition and has since exhibited twice at the V&A museum. She was also selected as a licentiate with the Society of Designer Craftsman culminating in a show at the Chelsea College of Art.

Most of Megan’s work draws upon historical and mythological iconographies, re-interpreting the allegories behind famous tales, and representing them in sculptural form. She explores humankind’s relationships with those who share our world and warns against taking these relationships for granted.
