Lindsey Wherrett is a Hobart based Ceramicist. Her work is available at Made By Us in Hobart.
My work is made to be used. It is a pure and fundamental investigation of form and function. I aim to create pieces that function seamlessly and can contribute to your happiness by quietly enriching the visual and tactile environment of your daily rituals.
I began my journey to this place in the field of architecture but found my way to ceramics through a strong desire to have a connection to my material and the physical manifestation of my ideas.
My process combines the fluid strength of wheel thrown vessels with graceful hand cut curves and clean lined glazing, giving each piece a unique form and elegant asymmetry.
Where possible, I enjoy incorporating local materials which I have pulled from the earth with my own hands giving these pieces a connection to place and a story to tell through the subtle and varied surfaces that gas firing draws out.
