Spilled Light

Our next exhibition opens September 24th September. We are looking forward to seeing new direction that Suzy Dünser work has taken. "Where do ideas come from? A vintage railway lantern spied at a market; a Victorian mystery; a new approach to a familiar material. A look back towards the past as we hurtle at an unprecedented rate into the future. And a challenge, in the form of the question: “What would you make if you were freed from function?”The work in Spilled Light responds to all of these, exploring the malleability of memory and the power of objects to evoke emotion."

Melissa McMahon

Directly inspired by the nebulous space between manufacture of crafted objects and studio craft practice, Melissa McMahon’s objects are often influenced by fragments of emotions and experiences. The contents of her grandmother’s china cabinet created childhood memories of Jasperware and luster and it was these mass produced objects which led her to ceramics. She uses clay to process these fragments and memories into contemporary pieces which allow her to explore and promote notions of craft.After many years spent working in the fashion industry, fate and serendipity aligned, allowing her to complete a degree in Contemporary Craft at Unitec. Melissa’s work has been selected as Boards Choice in the Eden Arts Art Schools award at The Gus Fisher Gallery in 2015, and was recognized with a Highly Commended Award in the ECC Student Craft and Design Awards at The Dowse the same year.Since graduating, her work has been included in two group shows at The Vivian Gallery in Matakana, with a significant number of pieces now included in private collections. Currently she is being mentored by Brendan Adams working from his studio.
