Richilde Flavell is a Canberra based emerging artist working with ceramics. Material curiosity orientates Flavell’s practice, she is interested in using clay in a variety of ways to articulate and explore her surroundings. This process has resulted in experimental, gallery based projects, where ceramics are used in spatial installation informed by experience of the natural environment.
Flavell recently exhibited in her first solo exhibition Studio Road at Strathnairn Art Centre as well as group exhibitions; Divergence at Form Studio and Gallery in 2016, Interrestrial at Nishi Gallery and Emerging Contemporaries at Craft ACT: Craft and Design Centre in Canberra in 2015.
Flavell received a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Ceramics) from the Australian National University in 2015. For her graduating work Flavell received several Emerging Artist Support Scheme (EASS) Awards, including the Craft ACT Exhibition award, the Strathnairn Arts Inaugural Anita McIntyre Exhibition and Residency award and the Canberra Potters’ Society Residency award.
