rushforth

12 JULY - 25 AUGUST

Peter Rushforth (b.1920) is one of Australia’s most revered artist-potters who has influenced a generation of ceramic practitioners in this country and internationally. His deep engagement with the Eastern tradition of China, and, especially Japan, with its long traditions of wood firing and glaze, which cultivate natural flaws and accidents as essential qualities, creating a dialogue between the glaze surface and body, has inspired his work since the 1960s. This retrospective exhibition celebrates his six decade long contribution to ceramics and includes works from galleries and museums across the country as well as works from his last firing in his Blue Mountain studio.

Exhibition supported by the NSW Government through Arts NSW
