About the artwork

Produced exclusively for Studio Voltaire, this risograph print is based on a vintage beer mat for Crowley’s Ale, a family brewing company associated with the English occultist Aleister Crowley.

Angell works primarily with ceramics, producing sculptural tableaux referencing hobbyist cultures, naturalistic forms, and the underground hand built ceramics of Britain from the 1970s and 80s. Although often appearing deliberately amateurish, Angell utilises a highly skilled production process for his sculptures, making use of glazing techniques that are both antique and state-of-the-art.

Special thanks to the artist and Rob Tufnell, London.
