1 APRIL – 30 APRIL 2016 (CLOSED 17-23 APRIL)



Join us for the opening of this exhibition which includes new work titled “And then the rain came” along with Carleen Devine’s stunning “Burning Embers” installation.
Bushfires are an increasing danger in the bushland around Sydney, with rising temperatures and the El Nino effect on climate. This sculpture evokes fire and burning embers.   A ceramic pot may be the only treasured remnant that remains after a home is lost to fire.

“Burning Embers” has an interior glaze which reflects the glow of embers in a bush fire. The exterior of the pots is coated with terra sigillata giving a smoky burnt look, and they sit amongst burnt ceramic branches. The glaze is loaded with red iron oxide and is held at very high temperatures for 5 hours to allow the iron to transform into crystals.
