exhibition of new ceramics @ the latrobe gallery, bendigo, victoria

15 August, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 15 September, 2013 @ 5:00 pm

My new series of work, is concerned with the magic of the firing process.

The throwing of the bowls is the same, though more refined

The burnishing of the bowls is the same, though more refined

The preparation for firing is as it has always been, but more finely skilled.

 

With this work it is the firing process in the wood-fired kiln

where the emphasis lies.

The enriching of a surface imbued with flame and smoke markings

Extracting from the kiln its visual magic.

Enhancing the work with Kiln mysteries

Painting the surface of the bowl with a brush loaded with fire and smoke,

creating landscape images in its primal form

 

Returning to the source

 

Something raw with something refined

And there lies the necessary tension in the work

The tension which gets the attention
