Phil Elson

From the artist:

My ceramics art practice over the past 35 years has been strongly informed by the ceramics of South East Asia; in particular the art of Japan, China and Korea. I have been fortunate over my years as a potter. I have undertaken an Australia Council studio residency in Barcelona. I have travelled to Berlin and beyond, the rural areas of India and Nepal, inviting my arts practice to be challenged by these environments.  The influence on my work following this period of travel was displayed in a strong change in the colour palette of glazes that I subsequently used and still am engaged with a changing practice.

Place has become very important to me and the significance of place, both culturally and artistically really commenced in Barcelona. The powerful role of place has developed in my work and this continues today.
