A love of nature is at the core of this stunning exhibition by Sydney based artist Ingrid Bowen and ceramicist Larissa Warren.
Working in ink & watercolour, Ingrid is fascinated with the interwoven narratives of people & place. She delves into the history and stories of the land to represent its ancient & rythmic beauty.
Larissa has a unique approach to clay with a passion for traditional Japanese neriage techniques. Using porcelain and mixed local clays she weaves pattern and texture through her designs creating a poetic narrative.
‘Starting with a fascination of patterns and contrasting texture, I embed hectic nerikomi pattern slices of colour, stoneware and raw minerals into fine porcelain forms.
I enjoy how the materials run amok during firing, but are then trapped in stasis,
seemingly immovable and permanently suspended on the surface’.
