ADC On Tour: An Australian Design Centre national touring exhibition
Clay Intersections presents the work of eight contemporary makers who take a range of innovative approaches to making and working with clay, exploring the different intersections of its sculptural and functional qualities.
Highlighting the work of Bridget Bodenham, Cone 11’s Colin Hopkins and Ilona Topolcsanyi, Helen Earl, Tania Rollond, Natalie Rosin, Ulrica Trulsson and Kenji Uranishi, the artists in Clay Intersections draw their inspiration from the built or natural environment and how they interact with it – whether in contemplation or in a practical sense – enhancing the way we live.
While some have been discovering the versatility of clay, setting new trends and engaging new audiences, others have set out to the learn age-old practices of wheel forming, casting and hand building, spending countless hours developing techniques and mastering skills.
Together, these eight artists are part of a new generation of craftspeople and designer-makers who have emerged alongside new and non-traditional market places outside the gallery and retail environment.
Official Opening Night 17th January, 6pm – 7:30pm
Entry is free, drinks can be purchased at the bar. Bookings essential through The Glasshouse
