Leopard Rose

SFraser ceramic
I am a ceramic artist with a studio practice on a property in the hills outside Ballina where I explore equine themes.  My work involves manipulating the plastic qualities of clay, layering decorative elements, colour and texture to develop ideas based on human horse relationships. 
I work in all types of clay stretching the medium with additions of materials such as paper, sawdust or vermiculite.  Associations of floral elements, screened images and additions of local the materials build up stories.  My stylised horses and vessels become holders of memory, triggers to nostalgia, through their many layers of meaning.
