Domino tiles, vessels &

The next group show I am participating in is an exhibition of Friendship & Collaboration.  Sponsored by Sister City Friendships and the local Government fellow artists Noela Mills and Christine Elcoate travelled to Jingdeshen, Xiamen and Wushi last year connecting with many artists, on their return they conducted 4 workshops here on the Sunny Coast with Chinese artist Li Jun resulting in a collaborative exhibition Culture 2 Culture with 12 artists [Li Jun and 11 locals], and school children's works from 2 Chinese schools and 3 Sunshine Coast schools.

The centrepoint of the exhibition will be 300+ domino sized ceramic tiles - made in Australia, some glazed here by local artists, others glazed in China and brought back for the exhibition.
and now we have a collaborative exhibition at  Rosebed St Gallery, Eudlo. 

A sneak peak of my pieces to be showcased - my inspiration was drawn from traditional Chinese porcelain techniques...

  1. fantastic work Kim - can't wait to see them in the flesh xoxoxo

    1. thanks Noela - I'm really looking forward to the exhibition and seeing all the works on show

  2. Lovely work! The ceramic tile collaboration has peeked my interest. Hoping to see photos. All the best for the exhibition, Kim!

  3. wonderful project and love the flowers!

  4. WOW.... the southern ice is the perfect foil for metal bits. Is that a serrated bit from a box of alfoil?

  5. What a lovely combination of porcelain and metal. Two opposites; just like life.

  6. Hi Robyn, the tile project is a fab concept - I will take photos and post, opening night is this coming Friday.

    Thanks Anna.

    Hi Jo, yes Southern Ice is just perfect! And yes it is the serrated cutter for foil and cling wrap.

    Thank you Marilena - the two opposites yin-yang, like life indeed!


Thanks for taking the time to comment I really appreciate them!
