Nine ceramic artists inspired by a workshop experience in Ubud, Bali in July 2010
7 – 25 October 2011 at Kerrie Lowe Gallery, Newtown, NSW
Artists: Judy Boydell, Sue Buckle, Carleen Devine, Jan Gardner, Vicki Grima, Marian Howell, Julie Shpeherd, Andrea Vinkovic and Hillary Kane.
Sitting on a bamboo stool in a quiet corner of Gaya Ceramic Arts Centre I pinched small balls of clay into forms that fitted my hands, as we played, created and explored with clay. It was July 2010 and a group of seven joined me in Ubud, Bali for two weeks of indulgence – Culinary Clay – a remarkable workshop where we considered the intimate relationship between food and the vessel in which it is presented. Since returning I have been exploring the spoon form, one of the most sculptural forms of the humble everyday objects we use on the table.
