Skeffington’s Cookie Jar Series utilises the bright colours of well-loved sugar candy, the Liquorice Allsort. Like Skeffington’s exhibition, this layered sweet comes in an endless variety of shapes, colours and sizes, accounting for its ‘allsorts’ name. ​

This delicious exhibition is a nod to Andy Warhol’s ‘Cookie Jar’ collection, Winnie-the-Poo’s ‘Honey Pot’ and the 1970’s must-have Bendigo Pottery Bread Crock. Each of Skeffington’s hand-thrown repetitive forms, uniquely adorned with cast and Allsorts motifs, has its own unique character.​

As with Skeffington’s earlier Vase Form Series, Sweet offers another take on a ubiquitous vessel form of long ceramic history, dressed in the memorable colours of a century-old sweet.

Preview and purchase from 11am Saturday 1st April. Official opening 3pm Sunday 2nd April. We are open from 11am – 5pm, Wednesday to Sunday during exhibitions.
