The imagery of park and bushland on these vessels – abstracted overlapping shapes of branches and leaves remind us of balloons and the joy of children running and playing in the park.
About the Artist
Josephine Townsend is a ceramic artist fascinated by colour, form and pattern. In this exhibition she is exploiting the unique characteristics of a range of clays, and techniques for adding colour and pattern. She works out of her home studio in Canberra creating an eclectic range of works, including vases, tableware, sculpture, wall art, jewellery and lighting. After careers in teaching and the public service, Josephine is now a full time ceramic artist and a part-time teacher of ceramics.
