Les Blakebrough is one of Australia’s most eminent ceramic artists. This exhibition continues Blakebrough’s investigation into the aesthetic and physical qualities of Southern Ice porcelain and is inspired by the places in which he has lived and worked. All of his works have a luminous quality, revealing an extraordinary precision of technique and an uncompromising insistence on the harmonious unity of form, colour and surface treatment. Many major collections, both in Australia and overseas have collected Blakebrough’s work including the National Gallery of Australia, every Australian state gallery, the Imperial Palace Collection, Tokyo and the International Museum of Ceramic Art, Faenza, Italy.
