POUR at Michael Reid Northern Beaches
From curator Vicki Grima: “We have used pourers to hold and deliver liquids of various kinds for centuries, but it is the beauty and uniqueness of such handmade vessels which intrigue us and bring such delight.
For this exhibition, POUR, I have chosen ceramic artists whose work I have been following and am interested in. Some make pourers as a usual part of their studio practice, others don’t, but I know potters love a challenge, and the possibilities of such functional vessels are endless. Check the spout … is it a small lip, or an elongated tube? How much fluid can the pourer hold? What type of liquid is the form and size suited to?
The handmade vessels shown at MRNB are one-of-a-kind. I hope you will enjoy looking for evidence of the fingers and hands that have contributed to the making and the creative choices that have influenced their form, surface and size”.
