NYT TMagazine: The Female Ceramists Turning Craft into Art
The genteel notion of female ceramists as “lady potters”, working at the wheel to fashion conventional crockery, has been shaken up as more women artists find self-expression in ceramics and push the boundaries between art and craft. Using clay as their chosen medium, they pull and pummel and stretch the limits of convention, producing objects that challenge traditional forms and concepts, and are sometimes intentionally imperfect.
Here, T Australia meets four women including NAS’ Head of Ceramics Lynda Draper and Alumni Juz Kitson and Ebony Russell – who create the most sublime art out of the most fundamental of materials.
