Georgina Proud — 'Amphora' Sculptural Vessel
The sesame seeds in the slip burn out, and sea glass melts, during the firing process creating a unique texture. It is water tight and can be hand washed.
Georgina Proud is a ceramic artist based in Naarm/Melbourne. Her practice focuses on materiality, creating experimental ceramic vessels with inclusions of glass and other found materials. Her work investigates how these materials react to the ceramic and firing processes, combining them with a variety of high fired clay bodies and glazes. She works primarily with wheel-thrown forms exploring methods of collage and assemblage to create distinct sculptural vessels.
Proud completed a Shiro Oni Residency in Onishi, Japan, 2019.
