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.
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
