Vessel a Ceramics Victoria Exhibition @ Herring Island

It’s always a treat to make the pilgrimage across water to Herring Island Environmental Sculpture Park, a 3.2 hectare artificial island constructed in the Yarra River adjacent to South Yarra and Richmond. https://www.onlymelbourne.com.au/melbourne_details.php?id=17877#.Uy-Ip9wkXqA
The location makes this year’s Ceramics Victoria members’ exhibition even more appropriate. Entitled Vessel, Ceramics Victoria member works fall into three loose categories:
1. The vessel which looks at the formal qualities of volume, weight, balance between foot & rim.
2. The vessel as a hollow container, one that has a long history linked to domestic ceramics use.

3. The vessel as means of transporting and travelling on water
