Prue Venables has established an international reputation as one of Australia's leading contemporary ceramic artists. Motivated by a particular interest in functional objects and a search for quietness and an essential stillness, Venables makes objects that are pared back, serene and deceptively simple. Technical expertise, invention and a diversity of references gently recede, allowing forms to stand innocently and for details of and spaces between objects to reflect musical rhythm and even a quiet pause for breath.
