JACQUELINE PONCELET 

Belgium b. 1947

 

Jacqueline Poncelet studied ceramics at Wolverhampton College of Art and the Royal College of Art and was a major figure on the international ceramics scene in the 1970s and 80s. In the early 1990s she diversified her practice to include painting, sculpture and public art commissions. In 2000 Poncelet was one of the three curators of the British Art Show and collaboration has become an increasingly important part of her work. Most recently, she was responsible for designing ‘Wrapper’, the vitreous enamel cladding at Edgware Road station (the largest of its kind in Europe) and also collaborated with Tate and Melin Tregwynt woollen mill to create a homeware range inspired by her home in the Welsh Valleys.
 

Poncelet has lectured at a number of institutions, including the Royal College of Art and the University of Brighton, and has exhibited her work internationally in numerous solo and group shows. Her work can be seen in many public collections, including that of the V&A, London, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Royal Scottish Museum, Edinburgh, and National Museum of Victoria, Australia.
