When Victoria was hit hard back in July by COVID19 and most of the States businesses closed, I was lucky enough to receive a grant from Regional Arts Victoria to support research into Soluble Salts and Translucent Porcelain. This grant allowed me the funds to pay for materials and time to do research into what effects can be achieved at different temperatures and to play around with the possibilities of translucency. I began with basic slip cast forms at lower temperatures and then moved to porcelain cocoon and hand-built forms. For images of the soluble salt works go to the images gallery.
Ri is now part of the Little Gallery co-op and is exhibiting at Little Gallery, Trentham, Victoria. Trentham is a beautiful town about an hour to the west of Melbourne - it is a popular tourist destination, for art, food, and its beautiful waterfall.
The opening for the Rise Up exhibition will be on 18-Mar-2017 from 2pm to 4pm at the B-Mac gallery (Bacchus Marsh). Over 130 wonderful people have participated in producing LOTS of fabulous Marching Women.
Please come to the opening or the exhibition that runs for two weeks and support this project. Proceeds of sales (as well as the Marching Women there will be other art works) will be donated to support victims of domestic violence.
A number of people have expressed interest in the "Marching Woman" form and its place in the Rise Up Project. If you would like to learn more about this, please read about it here.
