Hip Products: Shannon Garson ceramics

I was really excited to have much-loved ceramic artist Shannon Garson visit Bondville recently and wanted to show you some of her work.

Based in beautiful Maleny on the Sunshine Coast hinterland in Queensland, Shannon creates both tableware and exhibition porcelain pieces. In 2005 Shannon received a Churchill Fellowship and spent 3 months travelling in Europe studying the art of the medieval and Renaissance periods. Shannon's background as a painter is evident in the glorious drawings that each vessel hosts.

Some of my favourite pieces are from the Herbarium and Nest-Series One collections of work, including the magnolia, leaf and bird's nest vessels pictured above. The delicate hand-thrown bowls have such a dreamy quality and I love the use of botanicals in the pieces.

You can find Shannon Garson porcelain designs at galleries around Australia. Read more about Shannon on her blog Strange Fragments.
