Germination – the process of growth and development – describes both the transitional nature of working as an emerging artist, and the metamorphosis of seeds and pollen which has long fascinated me. Growing up I felt torn between pursuit of a career in the arts or biology; as an artist my practice now bridges these two passions. These pieces are studies in form exploring the visual tropes of seeds, pollen and spores as biomorphic objects, and are hand built in porcelain paper clay. They were recently completed whilst working as Artist in Residence at Don College (Devonport) through Arts Tasmania ‘Education Residency Program’, and I am delighted to present them for the 2019 Australian Ceramics Triannale through the support of the Salamanca Arts Centre.

This exhibition can be found in the Lightbox, in the window between the main entrance doorways at the Salamanca Arts Centre.
