Australia pottery – Tania Rollond and Ros Auld

 

Contemporary ceramicists Ross Auld and Tania Rollond are Aussies based in New South Wales. Their styles are contrasting – Ros uses stoneware, slab built textural surfaces while Tania works with wheel thrown, hand painted, smooth porcelain. Their similarity lies with their spontaneous, free spirited designs and originality.

Ros Auld :

Australian potter Ros Auld works from a studio at  Borenore near Orange, in Central West NSW, specialising in slab-built, or thrown and manipulated, stoneware forms decorated with wood ash glazes and trailed and incised slips, coloured oxides and gold lustre. Both her sculptural and functional work express surface textures and subtle colours that evoke the Australian landscape.

Ros Auld studied painting and ceramics at the National Art Schools in Newcastle and Sydney. In 1975 Auld worked in the ceramic studio of the painter, John Piper in England.

 Tania Rollond :

 

As I lean over the wheel, magpie songs swell outside and then flood through the open door. As my pencil searches for a line, the lightning flash of a rosella cuts across the window. As I take up my paintbrush, a passing storm stains the sky and stirs the ants – I take a deep breath as the first swollen drops land.
I shape the forms, draw out the lines and paint the colours that trace these rhythms on each white surface; patterns of this place and time.

Artist Statement for Magpie Songs at Skepsi on Swanston Gallery, 2009

Tania Rollond is a maker of exquisite porcelain vessels. Each is wheel thrown and decorated with drawings and paintings that allude to the natural world. She does not intend for them to directly imitate nature, but hopes that they convey some of nature’s dynamic force. And she loves visual clues that convey the relationships between the infinitely small and the universal. The vessels are beautiful in their own right – refined, elegant and gracefully seductive. However, the very smooth surfaces of those forms are also absolutely necessary because her wonderful drawings on them are an essential, identifying part of each piece.

Much of her work is decorated using a combination of drawing and painting with various oxides and stains – abstracted shapes of leaves, twigs and more touch the surfaces lightly.
