Gailan Ngan (b. 1971, Cumberland, BC) works and lives in Vancouver and occasionally works from Hornby Island, BC. Her practice involves pottery, sculpture and co-managing her late fathers’ art estate. Ngan collects material from many sources- commercial and gathered from nature. Her ceramic sculpture’s accumulate layers of fused surfaces into compositions of texture and colour. She graduated with a BFA from Emily Carr University in 2002. She has shown work at Cooper Cole, The Apartment, San Diego Art Institute, Nanaimo Art Gallery, Art Gallery at Evergreen, Kamloops Art Gallery, Unit 17 and The Vancouver Art Gallery. In 2015 she received the North West Ceramic Foundation Award.
