Jane McKenzie & Minaal Lawn


Work from Jane McKenzie @janeamckenzie
and Minaal Lawn @minaal_lawn_ceramics

CLAD, Bendigo Pottery @bendigopottery

June 2020 (visiting in-between lockdown)

This show highlights ceramic sculpture work that is made in components. Both artists keep the process, unhidden using stacking, balancing, insertion to highlight 'intersections' of where clay join pieces 'meet'. I suspect some slip and slurry has been used as well!

CLAD Gallery has gorgeous light and clean material space. 

Jane McKenzie

A favorite piece where the artist has left the wrinkles caused when bending the slab or the 'action of making' on the clay.

Pandemic Exhibition - Kirsten Perry online

Michael Reid is a gallerist who pliest their trade across numerous locations: Sydney, Berlin, and Murrundundi.

Added to this physical location and perhaps in light of C-19s necessary restrictions, Reid has created a new site called CLAY. This seems to be promoted as an online exhibition. The first (that I have heard of) is Kirsten Perry, Melbourne based slip moulding artist. The 'exhibition' runs from 1-30 April 2020.

To look at Kirsten's work go to:

What We Know Now24 February - 28 March 2020

The consequences of climate change and the prescient effects it causes to food production is of worldwide concern. What We Know Now seeks to convey how to produce such as fruit will be affected. Many farming areas are experiencing the effects of rising temperatures; fruits are drying out and spoiling before ripening. Other areas are being inundated by flooding events or rising sea levels, damaging the crops and exposing them to fungal diseases. It is predicted that if the average temperature increase is not limited to 2 degrees our food security could be under threat. The usual colours and taste of fruit may then only resign in our memory.

‘What We Know Now’ is a chapter heading (used with permission) from the novel ‘Things We Didn’t See Coming’ by author Steven Amsterdam.

Lene will donate $10 from the sale of each work to
