MEET Jasmin Rowlandson
Jasmin is a sculptural ceramist, jeweller and painter who was formally trained at Camberwell College of Arts. She creates beautiful, intricate one of a kind pieces that celebrates the immense beauty of the natural world.
Her work is inspired by her relationship and fascination with nature, the land, water, and the environment.
She predominantly hand-builds her sculptural work using a porcelain paper clay which allows her to create delicate and fronded forms full of movement and energy.
Her sculptural skills are inherent to how she creates jewellery. Working innovatively with precious metal silver clay (which is an incredible, versatile material made entirely from recycled silver) she has amalgamated elements of her sculptures to create unique one of a kind pieces that share the same visual narrative as her sculptures, enabling her to create future heirlooms with a bygone era aesthetic.
Inspirations stem from places that captivate and hold an emotional and visual pull, from areas of coast, reef, field, and wood. To the uninhibited growth of corals, lichens, mosses and fungi. The eroticism of unfurling flowers. The awakening of seeds confident of their purpose. The wild places under log piles housing microworlds.
She explores the rare, the everyday, the endangered, the ordinary and the spectacular.
