27 April – 20 May
“Continuance” is defined as the state of remaining in existence or operation. Exploring the notion of continuance through processes and history of making pottery, the exhibition brings together both the new and old. The medium encapsulates this concept through its process and product. Tracing back to the Neolithic period, pottery has stood the test of time with works from thousands of years ago still existing today. Skills from potter to potter have been passed from generation to generation. Colour, surface, form and shape of ceramics have continued to evolve over time with the past consolidating with the new to create the now. Inspired by Chinese ceramics with its rich glazes and surfaces the series of work melds elements of the past with contemporary forms
“Continuance” is on display at MARS as part of NGV Melbourne Design Week.
