Well what a week it was – Adelaide Ceramics Triennial – was fantastically informative, thought provoking and just down right inspirational.
Penny Byrne enthralled us all with her subversive ceramic sculptures. I was particularly thrilled because she had pictures of her new exhibition Iprotest. Penny’s attention to detail in the manipulation and alteration of old ceramic figurines creates powerful messages and stunning art works. You can see more of her work at http://www.visualarts.net.au/gallery/pennb
And the one and only Vipoo stole the show with his presentation. You can see more of Vipoo’s sensational work at http://www.vipoo.com/gallery.htm
There have been lots of pictures on the internet of the major exhibitions so i will just include a few fav pics
Australian Ceramics Association 50th Anniversary Vase Show – My little Banksia is at the back on the left
Penny Byrne and Debby at the Adelaide Ceramics Triennial 2012
and at the South Australian Art Gallery – one of my favorite pieces by Stephen Bowers. As you all know i am a lustre fanatic so I was also thrilled to see some pieces by William De Morgan with some nice ruby lustre.
Back to my studio to make more works. Happy clay days everyone
and dont forget to check out Mud Colony this week – It is sure to be fantastic with all the goings on – clay, ceramic and pottery good times.
