In its “inaugural foray into ceramics”. For its new ‘Mini Ceramics’ exhibition, artists Pippin Drysdale, Mitsuo Shoji, Brigitte Enders, Bev Hogg and Hiroe Swen  were asked to create an original piece in their known scale, then asked to create a series on a smaller or reduced scale. Opening 6pm tomorrow Friday June 19, all welcome.

Drysdale’s work is deeply inspired by the Australian landscape.

Shoji is a Japanese artist who lives and works in Australia, traversing the functional to the sculptural in his work.

German artist Enders lives between Canberra and the south coast has produced beautiful intricate miniatures with a matt black surface broken at times with small white shapes.  Hogg has created playful scenes with bunnies and   Swen, who lives in Queanbeyan and taught at the ANU has transformed her works into tiny receptacles that may contain a flower or sit on a table as a miniature.

Each miniature is shown alongside the artist’s larger work.

‘Mini Ceramics’, at Bilk Gallery, Palmerston Lane Manuka, June 19 to July 11.
