BASTARD CERAMICS is the ceramic studio of German artist Astrid Salomon.

Born in Germany, Astrid is now based in Melbourne after having lived in Berlin, Hamburg, Sydney and NYC. Having first studied Photography almost 20 years ago and later worked in directing, Astrid has now been focusing and experimenting with clay for the past 3 years.

Astrid creates one-of-a-kind pieces that are part of small batches and are imagined within series that extend and often in the process inform a new design. She uses hand building techniques like coiling and slab building, as well as slip-casting, and make her own glazes which is an integral part of her creative process.

‘Even though it is a much slower process, it is very rewarding once you get it right.’ says the artist.

STEPHANIE PHILLIPS is a ceramic artist from Sydney, Australia. She draws strong influence in her artistic direction from both of her grandmothers. Her paternal grandmother was a Russian immigrant who was a talented artist and craftswoman, while her maternal grandmother was involved in the establishment of The Crommelin Native Arboretum at Pearl Beach, NSW, where Stephanie has spent many weekends and holidays since childhood.

At a young age, she developed an affinity with the Australian bush and the influence of the forms and colours of native flora are evident in her work. Drawing on her love of plants, she creates curved vessels to house modern Ikebana. Using a combination of clays, glazes and oxides she creates her own colours and textures.

Stephanie studied glass arts at Sydney College of the Arts, mosaics at Randwick Tafe and fabric design and printing at East Sydney Tech before finding her true calling in ceramics. She has studied at ceramics at Gymea Tafe and at Hazelhurst in Sydney.

From her small studio in the Dandenong Ranges, Melinda Wallis strives for beauty in the form and surface. Simple designs can prove challenging, however this keeps her engaged as she continues to search for that one perfect piece. that enigma. She uses textured clays, often blending two or three together. The wheel gives Melinda her individual parts, and her hands assemble the finished product. The process is by far the main event for Melinda.

Tatt’s interest in New Materialist theories informs the technique of assembling multiple porcelain tesserae or cut and refined ceramic tiles. The physicality of individual assemblage of tesserae creates abstract forms of balance and precarity, layers, stacks, pattern and negative spaces. Using hyper focusing as a perceptive and making strategy, concentrating on the individual tesserae tile she considers their relationship and action with other objects and the surrounding environment.

TATTS’ interest in new materialist theories informs the technique of assembling multiple porcelain tesserae or cut and refined ceramic tiles. The physicality of individual assemblage of tesserae creates abstract forms of balance and precarity, layers, stacks, pattern and negative spaces.

Using hyper focusing as a perceptive and making strategy, concentrating on the individual tesserae tile, Tatts considers their relationship and action with other objects and the surrounding environment. In late childhood Tatts was diagnosed with apophenia, a condition where the brain has the inclination to perceive patterns and connection in everyday object. Tatts has continued to develop not only technique but the action of evoking story and kinship between medium, artist and viewer.

Stoneware, Glaze, Gold

ORIGIN:

TO KNOW ABOUT THIS PIECE:
As part of the handmade process and the experimental nature of Anna Parsons' practice, 'imperfections' are to be expected in her works - these may present as cracks or chips and will be pictured in the photos. 


ANNA PARSONS is a ceramicist, working intuitively, finding clay as a receptive medium to express herself. Anna often incorporates additions such as volcanic rock from the bush around where she lives. Anna's practice took many years of experimentation of temperature and clay body to get these results - she fires her work numerous times, sometimes up to 5 firings to get the desired effects. Anna majored in sculpture at  BA Sydney College of the Arts and now lives in Rosebank, NSW.

Clay receives me

Weaving instinctively

Bouncing Off

My inner psychology

Materiality, chemistry, bodily

I cast shadows
