Jill Symes — Sculptural Vessel in Green, Black and White
Jill Symes is a Melbourne-based ceramic artist producing a continuously developing body of ceramic vessels and sculptures which demonstrate developed hand-building skills and a mature understanding of the possibilities of earthenware clays and glazing techniques.
The use of ancient hand-crafting methods allow her to feel the natural rhythms of her media, emphasized by the application of an earthy palette of coloured slips onto a firmed clay canvas, resulting in a tactile combination of soft lines, natural curves and a sense of immediacy in her vessels and sculptures evocative of the timeless Australian landscape.
Earth materials combined with lively brushwork and colour come together to produce a series of finely crafted contemporary artworks.
Materials: terracotta, hand painted glaze
Dimensions: approx. 23cm x 13cm
