Our wonderful Robyn Gill has organised a residency at the Phoenix Ceramics Arts Centre at Jingzedhen. We will be at the newly built centre for most of October, with a few days in Shanghai at the beginning and end of the residency. A group of Brazilian ceramicists will be there with us and we'll be having a joint exhibition during the residency.
The artists who have committed so far are: John and Carolyn Ritchie, Robyn Gill, Ellen Appleby and two other local ceramic artists Yeats Gruin, Mieke van Sambeek.
All very exciting.

What an engaging event! Great turn out! Great venue! ArtMakers Noosa will be remembered in the Floating Land memories.
First weekend both kids and parents got their hands very dirty. Giving form to creatures leaving under the surface by shaping local found clay is addictive. We ended up with more than 300 small coloured slipped sculptures and ready to dry before being fired in our “cones” firing night. Why do the theme “Under the surface” prompt people to make boats? The question still puzzles us!

Mid week: tough day ahead. First stack the sculptures in the cone shaped clay kilns.
Then cut the collected dead wood and circle the kilns tight. Cover the kilns with slipped newspaper sheets.

As part of Floating Land, we will work with the community to create an installation called Under the Surface. The workshop is inspired by images and research about the wild flora and fauna cultures under the sea that keep our Earth in balance. The sculptures will be made from local clays, and fired in mini paper kilns.
Where: Boreen Point, off Noosa.
Installation of Works: 10.00am–3.00pm, Sunday 5 June
