FORM (English) = FORM (Danish) = AAKAR (Hindi)

An investigation of ceramic form by Bhuvnesh Prasad, Sandra Bowkett and Len Kuhl Jakobsen
Mr Kitly
18 July - 2 August 2015

Quote from the beautifully written room sheet: 
In Sandra's woodfire kiln Bhuvnesh's simple, elegant forms informed by Indian traditions highlight the beauty that occurs when clay an ash under heat alchemize to create luscious rich surfaces. 

It may have been only 3 or 4 years ago that Sandra built her woodfire kiln. It has been richly rewarding to watch the output of her practice in rural Victoria. The ash effect becoming ever more complex but touching ever so lightly on the vessel. Her work with Bhuvnesh is sensitively simple and pure.






And again from the room sheet:
Lene's works are meant to intrigue as being both from the earth and by the hand and ash from Sandra's woodfired kiln.

The ability of a firing technique to explicitly unite the works in this exhibition is a delight.

  2. Pleasure was all mine. Mr Kitly really is presenting both established ceramicists AND experimental works. Hope they invest in some good lighting soon!!
