Georgina Proud — Handled vase in Blue and Red
Georgina Proud is a ceramic artist based in Melbourne/Naarm. She places a focus 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.
Georgina works primarily with wheel-thrown forms exploring methods of collage and assemblage to create distinct sculptural vessels. She enjoys playing with the tension between the functional and sculptural, making work that blurs the lines between the two. Her practice places an emphasis on glaze development with a focus on new textures to add to her ever expanding glaze library. Her work explores the themes of femininity, fragility and strength through bold curves and textured surfaces that are at once both soft and robust
Materials: Stoneware, glaze, sea glass
