Main Gallery 1 - 24 March 2007
Presenting RAW EARTH – an exhibition featuring established artists whose love affair with raw clay has endured through their practice, and who now present their work with boldness for the raw qualities that clay offers. Each are influenced by their connections to landscape, and the properties of earth & fire that are so intrinsic to the medium.
Featuring multiple firings and freeness of form, their ability to understand the material’s properties, without fighting the outcome, has endured these artists to both public and private collectors, and has established them as some of the most collectible ceramics artists in this genre.
These six major artists have each shared many successes over their careers, and have continued to support their medium through education, promotion and publishing. They are all important ceramic artists, and a must in any ones collection. This exhibition should not be missed!
