artists in residence

Showcasing the creative activities taking place behind the studio doors at Northcote Pottery Supplies, our last exhibition for the year is underway.

The works of five ceramic artists are represented and it is interesting that there is comparative cohesion in the works.

This is an exhibition without collaboration, in fact works only emerged from their respective studios (or kilns!) just days before the opening. Yet there is an underniable link between the different bodies of work. The use of porcelain or white stoneware proliferates, as do soft, muted tones and objects that have a vessel sentiment without necessarily being functional.

In this sense, this exhibition highlights the impact of time and place on an artists vocabulary.
