Sabbia presents our annual Masters of Ceramics exhibition series, acknowledging the mentorship and shared knowledge that ceramists work within. A fairly solitary existence, ceramists often find themselves working in their studios quietly without any feedback from other artists whose opinions matter, and at their heart they are alchemists that push the confines of clay and glazes. Each work with the material different ways, highlighting the ability that clay has to be re-imagined in the hands of the artist.
There is one subject matter that all the artists in L’uomo have been heavily influenced by, and that is the landscape – whether in country NSW, Tasmania & Coledale, the Adelaide Hills or Ernabella, each brings a distinct personal style that connects with how they see their world. We are pleased to bring together this group of artists who create such strong work that resonates with our audience and shows the depth of Australian ceramic artists.
