Life is like a box of crayons

Hi, here's a new ceramic sculpture I made at the beginning of lockdown of a box of crayons. So many colours to try!
Acrylic on hand sculpted earthenware ceramic
Each crayon sculpture is 10cm x 1cm x 1cm

These works were commissioned by Cement Fondu gallery as part of a new online project responding to the current pandemic.

The project's called "Don't let yourself go" and features a series of 13 newly commissioned videos by lots of great artists, and I was invited to create a series of ceramic sculptures to be featured on the homepage. 

To quote 
Cement Fondu's co-founder Jo Skinner, when reflecting on all the incredible artist contributions to this project, "It is a beautiful, funny, poignant and provocative time capsule of an unforgettable period in our personal lives and shared history."

In other exciting news, this Saturday morning I'm hosting a free 45 minute online drawing workshop with the National Gallery of Victoria!

This workshop's aimed for children around primary school age but all are welcome. During the workshop we'll be drawing cat and dog portraits (or should I say, paw-traits!), as well as looking at some artworks from the NGV collection that also feature pets.

It's happening this Saturday, July 4th, from 11am. To watch along, please click here!

Thanks for reading, hope you're having a pup-ticularly nice week!
