Showcase #17: Kaye Poulton

Quick Info

When:
2 February – 2 May 2018
Where:
Shepparton Art Museum, 70 Welsford St, Shepparton

Produced for Showcase #17 and aligned with the Shepparton Festival, this body of work explores the seasonal shifts and fluctuating water levels of the Goulburn (Kaiela) River as it sculpts the landscape, leaving its residuous traces.

Waterline is comprised of a series of stoneware vessels that are wheel thrown. Modulating in form and scale, the vessels are realised as a linear sequence that evokes the strength and verticality of the nearby River Red Gums. A continuous horizontal line intersects the surface of each piece, revealing the bare textures of unglazed clay and suggesting the vestiges of inundation.

Poulton’s work can be found in the Shepparton Art Museum Collection, and at Craft Victoria, Melbourne and Bendigo Pottery, Bendigo.

Showcase presents exhibitions of new work by contemporary ceramicists in the glass display cabinet of SAM’s entry. Showcase is a unique opportunity for collectors and craft lovers to acquire work from established and emerging contemporary artists, as all pieces are available for purchase at the SAM shop.
