'From the Ground Up' is the 2022 Annual Exhibition for Valley Potters Inc., and describes the range of beautiful ceramic artworks created with the wonderful and precious resource from the earth, clay.
Each artist derives inspiration for their work from different places, such as their surroundings, their loves, their passions and their imagination. As each pair of hands has different experiences and works with the malleable clay in their own way, each piece is unique and holds a piece of the artists DNA and soul within it.
This exhibition is made up of works from Valley Potter artists and includes sculptural, functional and decorative pieces. The artists use a variety of making and firing techniques to create their work including hand building, wheel throwing, primitive firing, gas and electric firing.
Valley Potters Inc. began in 1978 and have drawn members from across Victoria of varying backgrounds, ages and experience. They exhibit and hold workshops throughout the year, open to all members.
It is a true pleasure to showcase the collection of so many talented local ceramic artists and their work in 'From the Ground Up'.
We look forward to seeing you at the opening on 19th November, 2022 at Mira Gallery.
