Charlotte Gaborit: L’ENVOL
15 April – 3 May
Opening drinks, Sunday 19 April 3-5pm

L’envol, is the first solo exhibition of ceramic artist Charlotte Gaborit. Her beautiful work is inspired by French provincial pottery and her love of the radial design form of sacred mandalas. Patterns and themes from nature are woven into her intricate designs.

Originally from Rennes on the west coast of France, Charlotte moved to Sydney almost 10 years ago after completing a fine arts degree. She discovered ceramics while living on Sydney’s northern beaches where she undertook a further two years of study at Northern Beaches TAFE. Charlotte now calls the eastern beach suburb of Bronte home.

Having your first exhibition can be an exciting but daunting prospect so while title of the exhibition, L’envol,  literally translates as ‘the flight’, it has an underlying meaning which is ‘to take flight’ in the sense of launching oneself into the world; a leap of faith, like a bird leaving the nest for the first time.

Charlotte and I would be delighted if you would join us for the opening on Sunday 19 April 3-5pm.

ALSO…… I have some new work in store at Chinaclay by Melbourne based ceramic artists Sharon Alpren and Adriana Christianson, Grafton based Geoff Crispin and Adelaide based John Ullinger. It’s always nice to get new work into the store.

Chinaclay is on Facebook and Instagram @chinaclay.handmade
