19 to December 20, 2000:
Australian Ceramics
Ten artists at the Gallery Marianne Heller


Refreshing clarity and creative vitality are the distinguishing characteristics of Australian ceramics. It is independent from a specific Australian tradition, for pottery has not been among the skills of Aboriginal culture. Australian ceramics reflect the openmindedness of a multicultural society which candidly welcomes, amalgamates, and adapts elements and tendencies from ever so many different cultures. Of almost equal importance is the powerful presence of the land itself which is so different from our European world. The immense vastness of the continent with its dominance of rusty brown colours leaves its mark on the productions of its ceramic artists as much as the peculiar quality of the light which distinctly outlines all things under its way.
