Victorian Craft Awards

Grace Brown — 'Moon Portal and Beacon to the Moon', 2021

$2,035
Moon Portal and Beacon to the Moon explore the delicate balance between utopia and dystopia within society. Designed to encourage playful interaction, they allow the viewer to transport themselves to another time, place, or universe...offering a safe passage from the often dystopian reality outside.

Grace Brown is a Melbourne-based ceramic artist. Using a combination of hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques, Brown creates pieces that reference dystopian worlds, with inspiration stemming from science fiction, fallen civilizations, and imaginary architecture. Through her dreamlike ceramic landscapes, Brown investigates the sense of connection we have to the ever-changing environment around us.
