Come and see my upcoming solo show!
This is a few months old, some of the earlier houses but I realised that it wasn't up here so thought I better fill in the blanks.
New ceramic work came out of the kiln yesterday. I'm pretty excited!!!These houses are getting more resolved and more interesting. Introducing sections of colour seems to bring the right amount of vibrancy into them, theres a good balance between the earthen tones of the oxides and the bright colored underglaze.
New cardboard sculpture/drawing entering the brave new world
Loving the through-visibility in this work. A repco air filter box never looked so good.
A new factory inspired sculpture has nearly finished drying now.
The repetitive linear marks look similar to corrugated iron, I like that. This piece was a response to the blue and white shed photographed below. I have been eyeing it off for some months now.
A new slightly more disjointed piece in its early stages here.
Recycled clay giving some rich colour variation in this slab. It seems a shame to join pieces together and loose that texture, hopefully it will pay off in the end!
Production shots from the making of a large slab work. Lack of internet has meant a couple of weeks lag between this photo being taken and uploaded, this piece has begun its drying phase now and more photos will follow. Some beautiful textures going on in there.
A shed of much inspiration, I love those roofs, have been enjoying the repetitious shape more and more lately. I have another clay piece coming along that's very strongly influenced by this shed. Probably a few more in the pipelines too. Great colour scheme too. Its the old foundry in Toowoomba, another manufacturing business closed down. Still a wonderful shed though.
