The exhibition will traverse the early influence of German and English craftsmen who settled in South Australia, to the impact of contemporary Asian influences exposing South Australian ceramic practitioners to cultures and technologies that challenge their approach to clay, on both a philosophical and aesthetic level. Innovative works arising from artist exchanges to and from India and China will sit alongside examples of locally produced, early functional and mercantile colonial pottery. Through exhibits, storyboards and recorded interviews, this exhibition offers a comparison between modern and traditional ceramic skills and design, revealing much about the economic and cultural aspects of South Australian life.
