Gail Nichols 

”  I am intrigued by the sculptural contrast between closed and open forms, and firing effects on exposed and shadowed clay surfaces. I enjoy playing with impressions of volume and movement. Some forms are seemingly stretched from the inside out and blown up like a balloon; others appear to dance in slow graceful curves or lively waves. For the past several years I have lived and worked at the foot of Mt. Budawang.NSW,The gently curved yet complex and rugged terrain of the Budawang range is reflected in my fascination with form and its interaction with surface. “

Eleni A. Holloway


The works in ‘Chaos and the Cosmos’ are an amalgam of my interest in ceramic and storytelling traditions, the place of mythology in Western contemporary society combined with autobiography and personal reflection. The interconnectedness of these themes was and continues to be a source of inspiration, a fascinating arena in which to grapple with those questions that are a most fundamental aspect of the human condition; how do we place ourselves?  ( from her ‘Chaos and the Cosmos’ exhibition )

Jeff Mincham 

” The idea that there exists in everything a unique characteristic that can be referred to as “its nature,” and that it is possible to express that “nature” through form and surface in a way that engages the sensibilities, continues to be a source of constant challenge and inspiration. “
