Culture Crawl Artist Spotlight: Jacqueline Robins

Crawl Artist and Modo Member Jacqueline Robins

Jacqueline Robins is one of 447 local artists displaying their work at the annual Eastside Culture Crawl. From November 19–22, the 19th annual Crawl will turn East Van into a huge visual arts, design and crafts festival. We’re proud to be a continuing sponsor for this celebration of local talent and are excited to see what the artists have in store for us this year.


Working with Clay

I work with clay, a timeless medium. In turn, I am compelled and inspired by the notion of heirloom. My functional wares are primarily wheel-thrown then decorated with both photographic and hand-drawn imagery.

JRobins

Utilizing a variety of printmaking techniques, I am able to illustrate and imprint directly onto the clay. When it is fired, the images and text are forever embedded in its surface. The image is one with the clay, under the glaze.

Vancouver Original

Train tracks, cranes, windowpanes, power lines and the ubiquitous crow are images well known to Vancouverites. Home and place are primary themes in my work. Vessels as memoirs, capturing specific moments, vessels as allegories: my work is intended to be lived with, telling its story for continuing generations.

My Modo Experience

I have been a Modo member since 2007. Cups, bowls, platters packed tight, a myriad of Modo vehicles have carried my wares to markets, here in Vancouver and up the Sunshine Coast. There is even a van outside my studio at the Mergatroid. In a way, Modo has been a supporter of locally made craft and art. Thanks guys! – Jacqueline Robins
