Goulburn Regional Art Gallery presents work by Janet Fieldhouse, Ina Jones, Katrina Leske, Kate McKay, Carlene Thompson and Alana Wilson.
Ceramics is one of the most ancient and far-travelled traditions across the world Shapes, materials, characters and colours reference the course of human action, and within it the personal histories, misfires, cracks and breaks.
With a range of approaches, including hand building, coiling and wheel-thrown centrifugal processes, the practices of six contemporary artists are reflective of the medium’s simultaneous softness, strength and endurance through intense heat. These sensibilities are both of the human artist and of the earth in their hands.
Curated by Hannah Gee, the exhibition brings together perspectives on the medium that go beyond the functional, and highlight a tenderness of tactility, and bravery in experimentation.
