Sedimentary Fictions at Gallerysmith
“Confectionary coloured porcelain sits next to roughly rendered natural clay in an interplay between the ideas of nature and industry. The porcelain is structural and not just a surface matter. In my adaptation of the traditional Japanese Nerikomi technique I deliberately design complementary environments which are meticulously planned and deliberately push against the more spontaneous and unpredictable wild clays”.

Layers of Place
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.
A small community based exhibition here on Tamborine Mountain will be open for the public to view on Friday 11th to Sunday 13th December. Sales of work will be online. Larissa will be in the gallery each day. See the invitation below for more details.
