Chance, kindness, synchronicity and ceramics

A chance meeting at The F Project Gallery in 2015 has resulted in a ceramic exhibition which runs at The F Project Gallery from Wednesday October 24 through to Sunday November 18.

In 2015 Megan Cullum had her studio at The F Project and was volunteering at the shop when Mandy Finlay and Marie Cook visited to see a wonderful mixed media exhibition. The three women began talking and discovered their shared love of ceramics. Megan kindly offered to fire some test pieces for a commission Mandy and Marie were working on at South West TAFE.

Later that year Megan was facilitating a ceramics course at TAFE and the three met up again. Their friendship developed and Mandy invited Megan and Marie to join her to apply for a group ceramic exhibition at TheF Project. The application was successful and after numerous think sessions and umpteen suggestions, they came up with the title, The Sound of Clay Clapping to express the joy that working with clay brings.

There is a common thread between the three artists working with this medium. They not only explore qualities and capabilities of clay, but weave their own stories and experiences into each piece they create. The three artists are great gardeners and quite connected to the earth, so it is only natural that they should have an affinity with such an elemental medium.

The exhibition encompasses a range of hand built and wheel thrown ceramics and includes garden sculptures and planters, functional, decorative and conceptual pots. A variety of clays and an exploration of surface textures are showcased.
The style of each artist’s work is very different and the result is an exhibition that celebrates the diversity of clay and the joyful challenge of working with it.

The Opening for The Sound of Clay Clapping is on Saturday October 27 at 4pm and everyone is welcome to come along to The F Project Gallery, 224 Timor Street and celebrate with the artists.
