Astrid Salomon – 'BigBelgianBlue', 2023
Astrid Salomon is a ceramic artist based in Melbourne. There are different series she approaches with the ceramic practice, always exploring a new angle through a limited body of work. The ideas for her work often draw inspiration in the emotional experience and the various stages and of the human condition. Like experiments, one shape informs the next and with that a diversity of characters evolve. It is not primarily the function of the vessel that interests her, but the space it holds in the world.
June 1- July 29
The Vessel Project is an exploration of the vessel en masse, as imagined by Melbourne’s most creative practitioners. The showcase continues the examination of modern amphorae in Jugs, and celebrates Craft's curatorial collaboration with the NGV for Vessels – now showing as part of Melbourne Now at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia.
