Meet the Maker: Madeline Cardone holds a Bachelor of Art History & Curatorship/Bachelor of Visual Arts, and is currently completing Honours in Visual Arts at the Australian National University. Though primarily trained in glass, she has an interest in ceramic making processes. Her objects have a minimal, reductive aesthetic, developed through a sensitivity towards subtle surface and refined form.
This collection of ceramic objects focuses on form, feel and function. Their matte black surfaces evoke the absorptive qualities of shadow, and their silhouettes are minimal and timeless.
The objects are slip cast in black earthenware, which are individually hand finished and internally glazed. The exterior is left unglazed to emphasize the material’s inherent tactility. The surface is instead protected by the food safe silica sealant Liquid Quartz©.
