Hilary Green – 'Messy Thoughts', Candle Holder, 2023
Hand sculpted by Hilary Green, this piece is inspired by chaotic thoughts that settle like a pile of ribbon. Fits two standard dinner candles.
Hilary Green is a ceramic artist and painter based in Melbourne. Her sculptures are inspired by the sea, shell fragments found on the sand as well as the shapes and shadows of rocks. In her work, she explores organic forms and imperfection through her drawing practice and translates them into surreal stoneware sculptures. Hilary is especially interested in the tactility of clay and how she can create the sense of fluidity and movement, leaving imprints of the hand in its hardened state. Her sculptural forms manifest mystical ancient shapes mixed with modern colours, playful positions and textures, whilst remaining functional to represent timeless domesticity.
