Jessica Sellinger — Wave Bowl in Blue, 2022
Each piece is made from rough stoneware. In ceramics each clay body reacts to each glaze differently at various temperatures. Therefore, it took quite a bit of experimentation of various clays and glazes to settle on a combination which provided the deepest and strongest outcome. The shapes of my pieces are all extensions of previous pieces that I have made; representing both exploration and myself as an artist. They are forever changing, in subtle and dramatic ways, however always staying true to my found design language. It's beautiful how each piece is utterly unique, moulded delicately by hand into a wave motif. 'It's not just blue' is accurate to say the least. Cobalt is extremely striking. It always creates a whole new language for a piece and the space it will reside in. The beauty about my pieces is that they can easily turn a simple space into something dynamic with their bold and compelling shapes and forms.
Jessica Sellinger is a ceramic Artist currently located in Brisbane, Australia. She naturally found clay after finishing her studies in Interior Architecture in 2019. Working with clay as her current medium, Jess is a one woman show creating all of her pieces delicately by hand in her home studio. _Her current work consists of both minimal and bold sculptures, vessels and furniture objects that are constantly evolving in design and functionality. Her pieces aim to encapsulate the viewer and make even the simplest of spaces seem artistic. Jess experiments with bright colour palettes and sculptural forms to create a contemporary approach to traditional methods. _.
