Abstract: The impulse to create ceramic art can come from any number of sources. Landscapes and seascapes produce a complex and subtle array of tones, textures, colour and movement. Rock pools at Cape Liptrap on the south-eastern corner of Australia are formed out of folded marine sediments and wave-cut platforms are receptacles for swathes of seaweed, shells and pebbles that continually shift and resettle with the tides. Further inland at Lake Mungo in New South Wales, vast sweeps of pink rippled sands and bone-bleached grasses stretch below intricately eroded cliffs. In the dry interior of the continent, the effects of sediment and light form random patterns over rock, sparse vegetation and drifts of dry wood. These places offer constantly altering and evolving natural forms from which to draw inspiration.
