Awesome Clay at Eveleigh!

Eveleigh Artisan Market will be showcasing some of the finest in ceramic art on Sunday, 7 November 2010 as part of the Awesome Clay at Eveleigh! event. Market goers will be able to purchase unique pieces by some of the most talented ceramic artists in Australia and will be treated to demonstrations including wheel throwing, hand-building and decorating. Vicki Grima from The Australian Ceramics Association is excited about the event saying, “There will be 24 talented ceramic artists showcasing their work at the Artisan Market. This is a fantastic opportunity for Sydneysiders to be able to view and purchase some beautiful handmade ceramic art.” Arian Aljinovic, Eveleigh Market Manager, added: “Along with the usual Artisans stalls showcasing the best in independent art and design, this event will show off some of the fabulous works being produced in ceramics; there will also be ceramic workshops for people, both young and old, to learn more about the craft. It should be lots of fun!” One of the ceramists showcasing their work is John Tuckwell who works mostly with porcelain, using up to four different clays depending on the piece. Another artist is Petra Svoboda who creates pieces using ceramic materials and mixed media. Her work is inspired by pop surrealism, animation and street art. The Artisans’ Market is held on the first Sunday of the Month (except January) and showcases the very best in independent art, design and crafts including painting, sculpture, furniture, photography, glass, homewares, designer clothing, and jewellery. The market runs from 10am-3pm at the heritage listed Blacksmith’s Workshop at 248 Wilson St, Darlington. The Eveleigh Artisans’ Market is proudly supported by Australian Technology Park. Come by and see Mr Poophead and Pigs CAN fly!
