Cita Daidone, Medusa Mary and the Saints of Ganeesha with Blistered Sticks, 2021

Nature in Porcelain Workshop

Immerse yourself in an explorative porcelain workshop with ceramicist Cita Daidone, focusing on creating intricate works representing your personal reflection of the environment.

In Cita’s practice she collects the flotsam and jetsam of the Currowan fire - burnt sticks, logs and ash that were washed up along the sands of local Jervis Bay beaches. Working with these forgotten bits of the burnt bush, Cita creates clay moulds of these forms.
Drawing from Cita’s experience, you will learn how to make moulds and a variety of ceramic techniques including pinching, coil and slab building to create your very own pieces in honour of nature.

Cita Daidone’s work is embedded in the transient cycles of nature. She works on small scale and largely with porcelain due to its translucent quality and capacity to reflect nature and light. Her exhibition Frivolity and Fire will be on display and consists of a series of ceramic works exploring concepts around loss, remembrance, and rebirth.

Details: Workshop Saturday 15 October, see website for exhibition and event details and bookings; Exhibition: 1 October - 26 November
