Clay Voices is a showcase of contemporary ceramics produced by Students and Graduates of the Otago Polytechnic Diploma of Ceramic Arts. The diploma programme is administered from Dunedin to learning centres throughout New Zealand – this exhibition is the work of the students based in Auckland, participating in studio modules taught at the Auckland Studio Potters Centre in Onehunga. The ASP has promoted and trained artists for well over 50 years. This exhibition reunites both the current and past students.
These artists celebrate the role of the individual, representing their own unique style. Whether sculptural, wheel thrown, or hand-built all of these artworks and functional items are unique. The emphasis is on revealing the multitude of possibilities that can emerge from using clay. Who better to illustrate this wonderful medium than the current and future generation of ceramic artists?
The artist line up for this year is Ann O’Sullivan, Annie McIver, Carol Stewart, Helen Perrett, Jacqui Brown, Joelle March, Margaret Bray, Marilyn Wheeler, Mervyn Aitchison, Michelle Bow, Pauline McCoy, Peter Baas, Roy Burgoyne, Sue Collins, Susan St Lawrence and Suzy Dünser.
Opening Saturday 26 November, 2pm to 3.30pm.
Saturday 26 November to Tuesday 13 December
