About the Makers: 

Within their artistic practices, both David Liu and Mirjana Dobson employ forms, textures and compositions found in Nature as design elements for their work. Drawing on a preoccupation with the complex ecology of our wondrous reefs, Dobson’s detailed hand-made ceramic tiles fuse an abstract reference to the recurring rippled surfaces found on underwater corals. In contrast, the unpretentious contours of Liu’s work imbues a sense of calm and order that exists in Nature, which echoes his belief that the made objects contain a soul.

Their collaborative timber and ceramic object, the Orbicella Hall Table juxtaposes Liu’s minimalist design style with Dobson’s decorative repetitive mark-making. The inlay of stoneware within the simple angular contours of the timber frame binds the natural elements of clay and wood, highlighting the fundamental relationship that co-exists between earth and tree in the natural world.

Available for shipment or collection from 7 July 2022.
