I love buying ceramics. If I could afford it, I would buy one piece from every exhibition I go to!
A while ago in April, I went to a group show at the Kerrie Lowe Gallery in Newtown. Two of my friends, Min Shin Song and Ion Fukazawa (from Prickly and Cream) were in the show.
It was a fantastic show! There were so many people at the opening, the crowd spilled over to the pavements outside. I was introduced to Milly Dent (from Milly Dent Design), who've been producing wonderful marbled porcelain tableware. Got talking to a few other people just about random art topics. It's times like that I miss COFA... nowadays I rarely get the chance to converse about ceramics or art in general.
Ion showcased his work from the Ceramic Riders machine, where he rides a bike that spins a table that spins ceramic slip to make vessels. Watch the cool video here: http://vimeo.com/71867178
And Min Shin did these fantastic industrial looking tea pots. You wouldn't think it's a tea pot! I was so impressed I had to have it!
Isn't it just so cool?
