“Having moved from Hobart, Tasmania, a few years ago, I now live and work in the Illawarra, on the east coast of New South Wales, where the escarpment is a brooding force. The raw energy of the Southern Pacific Ocean is another dominating feature of my new landscape. Both of these elements appear in different forms in this work. This exhibition continues my investigation into the aesthetic vocabulary of unglazed porcelain. The coupling of thin cast porcelain sheets with a process of ‘deep etching’, where layers of clay are progressively washed away to create an image, allows me to play with the translucency of the clay.” - Les Blakebrough, 2014
