My name is Amelia Lynch I am 24 years old and have recently just completed my final year of MFA at the National Art School. I grew up on the Central Coast and have been doing ceramics since I was 14 years old. The fauna and flora of the Central Coast and the surrounding Australian Landscape is heavily influential in all my works as I try to incorporate different aspects of the colour, shape, form, and texture into my work.
My art making practice explores my connection with the Australian landscape. I’m particularly interested in the textural qualities of the micro and macro landscapes of the Central Coast and places I have visited.
The glazes suggest the textures of eucalyptus bark, wattle flowers, concave rock pools and the reflections of water in bush creeks, and yabbie exoskeletons. All of my glazes colours come from the native flora and fauna of Australia. My work seeks to replicate these patterns forms and colours through the use of crawl, crackle and matte glazes.
