Jill Symes Ceramics


Jill Symes is a Melbourne-based ceramic artist producing a continuously developing body of ceramic vessels and sculptures which demonstrate developed handbuilding skills and a mature understanding of the exciting possibilities of earthenware clays and glazing techniques.

The use of ancient handcrafting methods allow her to feel the natural rhythms of her media, emphasized by the application of an earthy palette of coloured slips onto a firmed clay canvas, resulting in a tactile combination of soft lines, natural curves and a sense of immediacy in her vessels and sculptures evocative of the timeless Australian landscape.

Earth materials combined with lively brushwork and colour come together to produce a series of finely crafted contemporary artworks.
