Synopses & Reviews
This publication presents a challenge to the traditional association of ceramics with function. Much ceramic work continues to be considered in relation to the vessel the cup, plate and teapot but there is much more to consider. The four artists in this publication work with ceramics in a broader context, looking at the history, cultural use and social value of clay. Artworks by Millie Chen, Jamelie Hassan, Baco Ohama and Garry Williams are discussed in texts by Sandra Buckley, Amy Gogarty, D.L. Pughe and Reginald Woolery. Sylvie Gilbert, curator of the exhibition, provides an introduction. A groundbreaking essay by Peter White, Whither Function: Ceramics in the Comfort Zone, directs ceramics out of the comfort zone to discuss possibilities beyond the traditional framework of function.
