Pottery by graduating Holmesglen Students

Alison Frith & Jessica Rae

Guild of Objects

November 2015

Snuck into this show early and Ali & Jess graciously allowed me to poke around.
Very impressive, consolidated work from these young graduates. Both potters work with an earthy palette as is the  current trend and use stoneware clay and glazes.
Jess' pillow vessels are industrial in form but softly domestic in scale with gently curving rims. Tricky making here; joining and inner and an outer form so seamlessly.
Ali really wows with her volcanic glazes. She reigns-in the eruption by containing this bubbling fury to the lids of perfectly restrains cylinders. The lunar-like effects balance harmoniously with her choice of satin glaze. I would love to see some wilder, deeper pits & holes on future work. 

It is devastating to hear that Holmesglen TAFE is closing its course when the diploma turns out talented and energetic potters as these Two.
