It started with an aesthetic idea – a vision of the loveliness of pinch pots, the simplest of ceramic forms, en masse. It became an idea about community. To get the thousands needed to fill the gallery, ceramicists Suzi Lyon and Mel Robson had to involve other people, writes KIERAN FINNANE.
The brilliant white bark of the ghost gum, its apparent smoothness, and the grace of its limbs are what immediately catch our eye as we move through the bush, but in Ghost Gums, an exhibition by Mel Robson and Elliat Rich at Araluen, the trees are not approached in the singular. We enter the gallery space as if entering a grove. KIERAN FINNANE reviews.
