Sandra Bowkett — Wood Fired Stoneware Ginger Jar
Living and working near Tallarook in Central Victoria, ceramicist Sandra Bowkett's work is governed by the daily interaction between clay and body. Her need to make the ‘useable’ has kept her focus on tableware.
Currently her works moves between finely handmade porcelain vessels decorated with elemental designs painted in metal oxides and a return to more minimal wood fired thrown tableware.
Working with the Rajasthani potters in India Sandra developed a new way of making on the pottery wheel leading to a loosening aesthetic to her thrown forms. The adventure into wood firing has lead to exploring new clays but revisiting classic glazes. She would like people to have the handmade in their homes and so aims to make objects that are a continual pleasure to use.
