Exhibition : Working with Clay
8 October – 7 November 2021
June Marriott Gallery, Central Craft Alice Springs

My creative process is experimental, intuitive and
driven by the need to use found materials to create
objects and installations in response to my local
environment. Over the past two years I have been
working with various found clays I have sourced
with permission from local Elders and artists from
the Ngaanyatjarra Lands of Central Australia on the
tri-state border of NT, SA and WA.
Working with ceramic hand building and mould
making techniques, I have created a variety of forms
and installations that have been pit fired using the
local hardwood mulga (acacia aneura).
