Wild Women, Wild Clay
Driven by my fascination of the minerals and clays underneath, the layers of the earth and how we uncover them. Echoing my local landscape and using raw volcanic clays from Tamborine Mountain, geological metamorphosis and history has lead me on a fascinating research project for the last 12 months. During this time I have researched female potters from the 1940’s-80’s who lived in unique isolation here on the mountain; dug clay from their backyards and sold works from their home based galleries. Having located some of these original sources of clay and now making with them, I have become immersed in their stories.
