Highlighting the work of Bridget Bodenham, Cone 11’s Colin Hopkins and Ilona Topolcsanyi, Helen Earl, Tania Rollond, Natalie Rosin, Ulrica Trulsson and Kenji Uranishi, the artists in Clay Intersections draw their inspiration from the built or natural environment and how they interact with it – whether in contemplation or in a practical sense – enhancing the way we live.

While some have been discovering the versatility of clay, setting new trends and engaging new audiences, others have set out to the learn age-old practices of wheel forming, casting and hand building, spending countless hours developing techniques and mastering skills.

Together, these eight artists are part of a new generation of craftspeople and designer-makers who have emerged alongside new and non-traditional market places outside the gallery and retail environment.

Clay Intersections is presented as part of a vibrant ceramics community in Sydney that crosses paths with studios, educators, galleries and stores beyond the exhibition. Our exciting public programs, which includes workshops, master-classes and a one-day curated ceramics market in September, will introduce visitors to this creative and thriving network.
