Raven Reckoning

Megan Adams, 2019              

Ceramic sculptural vase 

Size: W15 x H29 x D15

Megan’s series of work featuring the raven are derived from a fascination with the powerful symbolisms associated with the bird from ancient times to the present and throughout many cultures. For Native American cultures it is a harbinger of change and transformation. In ancient Rome, ravens can signify the ability to cross between the spiritual and material worlds. Starting with timeless, classical shapes, Megan uses bold colours to represent the primal life-forces impelling our journey in this world with red as the symbolic colour of life. Sundials represented in Roman numerals count down the hours as a reminder that time is finite. Megan’s raven sculptural pots are reminders that as our time is fleeting we have to live it to the fullest before the next stage of our journey which is imminent...

Artist Megan AdamsArtist: Megan Adams

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.
