Issy Parker is a Sydney/Eora based artist that makes ceramics to be directly engaged with every day. Her work seeks to celebrate the balance between nature's process and the artists hand to organically create lively and distinct vessels. Each one a unique object, made intuitively and with love, when used they create a moment for connection – with someone else, with the moment, with the sustenance and beauty they are holding space for. Parker exercises hand building, slab moulds and wheel throwing techniquesas her form of exploration. Electric, gas and wood firings all used in her practice to communicate different surface treatments.
Parker graduated with a major in ceramics from the National Art School Teaching and is a studio technician for the National Art School Running term classes in private studios. Assisting for Merran Esson, Ann Thomson.
