I’m stepping outside myself today into the world of colour but it still embraces the subdued palette that I love. There is a texture that is tactile in each ceramic creation along with a fading in and out of the glaze, borrowed from Nature and producing colours that are shaded rather than solid. This technique showcases some very clever ceramicists who are using dyes to create wonderfully innovative effects. From Japanese artisans to local Australian designers you can see the love and detail that has gone into every handmade item. The concept here is to collect these unique individual pieces, not a matching set. Then each piece becomes a thing of beauty to marvel at and treasure. The rawness of the totally nude oak table which gives off its own light is accentuated by the dark background forming a perfect foil for the pops of colour culminating in a homage to the Earth and its elements.
