June artist of the month: Kris Coad

Kris Coad's Studio

Kris Coad is an established ceramic artist working in Melbourne, Victoria. Her practice is of particular interest to me because she works across number of artistic areas. Coad creates beautiful porcelain tableware and utilitarian objects, subtley inspired by her travels, interest in Asia and appreciation for the 'handmade'. Her installation work often uses multiple, fragile objects which resonate throughout the gallery space. Hung in mid-air, her exhibition work throws eery shadows and creates a sense of quiet reflection.
I look forward to presenting Coad's new work and her interpretation of wearable ceramics.
