Super talented Brisbane ceramicist Mel Robson is also a really nice person. Even when I wrote to her to find out about her latest info thinking that it had been a while since she updated her blog (oops! I was looking at an old post from January 2008!), she very graciously forgave my dingdong-ness and even shared some kind words about Bondville.
So with that introduction, let's check out some of Mel's fantastic work. You'll find a range of ceramic pieces including beautiful bowls and vessels (see top image), as well as clever cut pottery (such as the cool pigeon display above). Some earlier works include bowls covered in recipe notes and road maps, and other typeface graphics. There are some great wall tiles featuring delicate birds and patchwork-like designs. I love the quirky The Absence of Objects pieces, and am really drawn to the nod-to-patriotism cut pieces from the Keep Calm and Carry On series.
