Contemporary Australian Ceramics from La Paloma Studio, Hill End NSW - Australian Galleries at Mary Place Gallery

We got to the point of halfway through the Ceramics Triennale kind of hoping not to see any more ceramics so we hadn't planned to go to this show.

Glad we did though ... finally some ceramics that really push the art button...

Highlights include some extremely quirky pieces from one of our favourites, Elizabeth Cummings...



Some large vessels from Garry Shead, incredibly moving ... as if the sum of his last decades work has bonded in just three powerful urns...


and Euan Macleod extending his boat series into ceramics...
