Exhibition at Petrichor gallery- Walpole south coast W.Australia
Wildern is not a common word,and that in itself intrigued and inspired me.
As a ceramic artist and maker of all things from clay, I was drawn to re-invent aspects of working with clay that represent something different. I don’t know if I have succeeded, but it has drawn me back to nature. I usually work on things associated with the human condition and so it has been refreshing to look at nature in conjunction with wilderness areas around the South West. Probably the only little pocket of true wilderness in Western Australia exists in the wilderness surrounding the small hamlet of Walpole, a unique place and environment.
Given the brief of Wildern for the Southern Trail Exhibition – an annual event – has started me on a new journey which is vital for an artist to stay motivated and inspired.
