Connections - land and sea

Exhibition runs to 30 May 2022

Works available for sale online Makers Gallery

"We are all capable of bringing memory or meaning to a place, and this engagement can heighten the significance of a location associated with our past experiences or current surroundings. For a craft-based artist who sources raw materials from the earth to incorporate into their practise, the threads of connection between hand-formed items and their places of origin are like magnetic circuits that charge the material object with vitality and meaning."

                              Dr Julie Bartholomew, Our Material Home, exhibition essay 2022

Climate and the impact changes are having on country and our daily lives is a conversation more Australians are having than ever before- we are questioning current land management practices and asking how we can look after our land, rivers and seas in a more sustainable, and respectful way.

The exhibition Connections – land and sea continues to explore the use of clay and found materials from the meeting place between land and sea to create handmade porcelain objects. It is from the earth and sea, and physically connects me to the environment. In my ceramics practice I forage for and collect materials and use these materials as an expressive language to reveal stories and generate narratives in the work.

Connection – land and sea is a solo exhibition exploring personal connection to ‘place’. The works are inspired by the region where I live from the Bogong High Plains to Barragga Bay on the far south coast of New South Wales.
