New Sculptural Artwork

This is the latest artwork to emerge from the studio: Pod.

It features three wheelthrown, manipulated, burnished and sawdust fired ceramic forms, woven into a pod-like structure made from willow, eucalyptus, bark and jute.

I love combining natural materials with ceramics,as they compliment each other so well.

A short statement about Pod:

Pod explores the natural environment, and via its interweaving construction the interconnection of human relationships and what they mean in the twenty-first century. The sculpture is made of small seed pod symbols made of clay fired in a pit dug into the ground and eucalyptus bark and small branches embracing the pods signifying the interwoven environment in which we live.

Dimensions: 66 x 16 x 9cm Price: $420.00 (any sales enquiries can be directed to my email address)

I hope you like Pod 🙂

  1. An impressive piece of work with a strong narrative.

  2. I agree w/Pete. Also, you create such a variety of work, but this vein / genre is my most favorite. This piece is magnificent, Dawn (and underpriced!) It’s worth much more in my eyes.
