Tide is a series of handmade tableware with imagery that portrays the essence of the beach. Each wheel thrown porcelain form is inlayed with unique painterly monoprints and shell imprints, creating individual usable objects that imbue impressions of the layers, lines and threads left by the ebb and flow of the tide.
Materials: Wheel thrown porcelain, monoprint, carving, slips and glaze.
Dimensions: 9 x 11cm
Meet the Maker: Sue Hewat is a Canberra based ceramic artist. Conceptually, the transient nature of the ebb and flow of the tide guides her work. Sue has begun exploring visual links to other parts of the environment, examining parallels of pattern in both the land and the sea. She is drawn to the layers, lines and threads that define the essence of place.
