Avi heads for Tel Aviv

Avi Amesbury at work in her studio

FORMER director of CraftACT, Avi Amesbury, is on a roll, with news that she’s heading off for a residency in Tel Aviv.

Amesbury, who now lives and works at her ceramic practice on the far south coast at Barragga Bay, will be artist-in-residence during October at the Benyamini Contemporary Ceramics Center in Israel, which exists to “create a dialogue between different aspects of ceramics.”

Selected into the Triennial, Avi Amesbury’s , ‘Capturing light’ 2016

And not just that, the well-known local region  ceramicist, who has exhibited this year at both the Stanley Street Gallery and the Courtesy of the Artist Loft in Sydney, has seen her work, “Capturing light,” selected into this month’s 5th  International Triennial of Silicate in Hungary.

The Triennial, the brainchild of János Probstner, founder and former director of the International Ceramics Studio, is in Kecskemét, a large town 80 kilometres south of Budapest and an international team of judges assessed the work for entry.

All the works must be original and executed in clay, concrete, porcelain or glass, but artists were otherwise free to interpret the 2017 theme “Balance.”
