Winter Warmer exhibition
Alan Perry is a blacksmith who makes a range of contemporary design forged items that bring a timeless elegance to the interior living space. His unique designs and traditional hot forged techniques are equally pleasing within any age of building and decorative style.
“The process of heating the metal, until it reaches a malleable state and then using hammer blows to transform it is very enjoyable. I am currently enjoying exploring the addition of colour onto the textured metal using heat from the forge to achieve this. Wherever possible I try to use traditional and ancient techniques in my work.”

SIMPLY PEMBROKESHIRE: TOUCHING THE SURFACE
2 December 2015 – 1 March 2016
An introduction by the Artist:
I was born and grew up in Pembrokeshire and still spend as much time here as possible - so the amazing inspiration it offers is very much at the heart of my work. The past 25 years of my career have been spent teaching Creative Arts to adults in Further Education, running Workshops and exhibiting in and around the Herts/ London area where I currently live. Exhibiting here at Oriel-Y- Parc is a great privilege.
The inherent beauty of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park is immediately captivating - from coast paths and intriguing rock formations to spectacular seas, wildlife, and craggy hills as well as its more quiet spaces. The changing surfaces, moods and light within the landscape offer amazing contrasts both visually and physically, as the natural weather patterns, seasons and time dictate.
It is the changing textural nature of the coastal landscape which is the focus for this exhibition. A mixed media approach to working allows me to explore and interpret these changing moods and surfaces, expressing them in a semi-abstract way.
