Bushland Impressions by Makers Perspective
Experience the botanic garden through clay 

Bushland Impressions by Makers Perspective

An exhibition of the work of four clay artists inspired by the bushland setting of the Maroochy Bushland Botanic Garden.

Makers Perspective brings together four artists with unique perspectives on working with clay. Bushland Impressions is an exploration of the medium, drawing inspiration from the Maroochy Botanical Gardens.

Carol Forster reimagines texture in her functional and decorative ware, illustrating her intimate knowledge of the bushlands as an avid bushwalker.  

Kath Melzer’s love of colour and form with a dash of playful humour, produces decorative and sculptural work unique to her renowned style, yet inspired by the bushlands.  

Kristina Pearson’s work is made for the bushlands, inspired by the bushlands embodying the textures and forms of native flora in her sculpture. Her pieces are a beautiful addition to any garden.  

Maureen Sheargold’s love of the gardens comes together beautifully in this exhibition with her love of the process of making with clay. Her minimalist hand thrown forms, completed with the expertise of a master of glazes, capture the essence of the bushlands in every piece.   

Together a collection of ceramic perspectives not to be missed.  All work is available for purchase with commissions from sales going to Compass Garden Café - supporting trainees to develop real-world skills. 

Dates: 8 June - 18 June (10am-3pm)

Venue: Exhibition space, Arts and Ecology Centre
