End of the Ice

Currently exhibiting in the solo space at Hullabaloo is ceramicist, Sue Rutherford.

Based in a small studio in Hawea, Sue's work is mainly handbuilt with a focus on the vessel form, texture, and surface decoration.

This latest collection of ceramic vessels reflects a glacial landscape. The scoured rock faces, melting ice flows, and the new growth following receding glaciers are depicted on a canvas of clay slabs. Multi-layers of glaze, oxide, and stain are applied with a brush creating a surface with a depth of colour and texture.


The exhibition concludes 12 March 2022
