RENOWNED Western Australian ceramist Sandra Black will be in-store at Aspects of Kings Park this weekend to provide an insight in to the creation of her porcelain pieces.
Inspired by organic forms, particularly the structures of plants and trees, Sandra's current work explores both their ecological fragilities and adaptive strengths, to remind us of the beauty that is inherent in nature.
Having exhibited at a number of shows across Australia and overseas, Sandra is thrilled to be Aspects of Kings Park's July feature artist.
"I was originally introduced to the medium of porcelain as a student 35 years ago and I found the sensuous surface qualities for carving and glaze very appealing,” Sandra said.
"Life is fragile but also tenacious and I want my work to reflect this by the use of more extreme carving and piercing but also by using one of the strongest ceramic materials in porcelain clays."
With 29 solo exhibitions and over 200 group exhibitions and competitions around the world, the quality and uniqueness of Sandra’s body of work is undeniable.
A number of Sandra's pieces are currently for sale at Aspects of Kings Park including pierced bowls, flower cups and pieces from her Jingdezhen series.
She will be in-store on Sunday, 22 July from 10am to 3pm.
