Reductive/Additive: Ceramic exhibition and demonstration

A popup exhibition of contemporary ceramic sculpture and design by seven artists: Kirsty Collins, Vanessa Leung, Michelle Bulloch, Jennifer Hartley, Vanessa Sim, Emily Wynn and Rong Li. There will be a range of ceramics for sale.

Kirsty Collins is a contemporary, deaf artist and craftsperson completing the Advanced Diploma in Ceramics at TAFE NSW (Gymea) and currently developing a new body of work to be exhibited at Hazlehurst Gallery in 2021. Collins creates large format, hand-built sculptures, limited edition slip cast ikebana vases, as well as thrown, hand carved tea bowls. Collins’ sculpture explores the embodiment of fantastical cloud and smoke landscapes in clay. Coming from a contemporary art and design background she is interested in connections between art, design and craft thinking. She has just installed a Skutt kiln and makes her own experimental glazes, slips and terra sigillata.

Details: Open Studio: Saturday 17 October, 10am – 4pm; Slip Casting Demonstration: Saturday 17 October, 11am – 12pm
