Sedimentary STORIES at Gallerysmith

I like the hidden and forgotten stories that a place holds in its geology and its people. Often buried by time these stories are lost to shifts in generations and the changing use of land. But places contain layers of meaning always bound to history and that is what my work explores.

This series celebrates the unexpected. Digging into the lineage of female ceramic makers from Tamborine Mt, where I also live and work, led to the rediscovery of forgotten local wild clays. Contrasting these with commercially produced clays reveals their unpredictable nature and, in many ways, also speaks to the nature of the women who used them. Tough, resilient and unique.

PAST

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.
