Jenny Chan, 2018               

Clay wall piece

W53 x H43 x D3.3 framed

Aftermath consists of 28 clay masks on a black background with gold text and was created as a response to Turner Contemporary's Journeys with 'The Waste Land' open call project. Jenny's interpretation of despair and mental meltdown looks into how we are shaped by our history even as memories fade with time. She uses T.S. Elliot's prose from the poem in the background of death & desolation and rebirth to document her personal journey from depression to establishing her sense of self-worth.

Artist Jenny ChanArtist: Jenny Chan

Jenny Chan is a self-taught ceramic artist based in Sheffield, Yorkshire. She was born in Hong Kong and arrived in the UK in 2014 via Naura, Singapore and the Middle East. Her journey into ceramics is as eventful as her life from international ex-pat to UK resident. It started as an escape from depression, giving her focus, peace and fulfilment. In just three short years, Jenny was selected for the Crafts Council UK Hothouse 2019 Programme and became a member of Design Nation. Along the way, she has garnered commendations and awards for her unique and thought-provoking ceramic sculptures and has been invited to participate in numerous fairs and exhibitions.

With meticulous and reflective craftsmanship, Jenny creates unique figurative sculptures each with their own facial expression and backstory. Her work is intriguingly detailed, undeniably touched by her Chinese origins. Using traditional hand-building techniques in coiling and slab building, each piece is unique and individually sculpted. No two pieces are the same.
