Susan Christie

She describes her work as "blurring the boundaries between art and design and craft." Indeed, her works do blur boundaries. It's hard to decide if her paintings are crystals, popsicles, animals, vegetables or something even more surreal.

“While travelling around the South Island in 2005 I stopped at a quarry and was gifted a large brick-like lump of Oamaru Stone. I looked at it with a kind of curiousness and fascination for a year or so and then one day I started chipping away, I was hooked."

Gaye is specifically interested in what happens when spaces are divided by objects or line in both sculpture and painting. Gaye's, works often bring together very disparate materials, questioning textural understandings and utilitarianism.

I enjoy the process of hand building and sgraffito (carving into coloured engobes/underglaze). Having been a scuba diver I also like the underwater world which can be seen in some of my work and I enjoy quirky lidded pot making which often involves legs.

Recent developments in Jenning’s work have seen the inclusion of mixed media painting applied to the surface of the clay after firing. The clay has become like a canvas on which she can apply experimental designs and textures.

After several years experimenting with mosaics and clay, Rhonda discovered Raku firing. The often- unpredictable results and just as often delightful surprises, is what keeps Rhonda interested in the glaze opportunities with this medium.

Metal lustre glazes are my current interest and have been for a number of years. The possibilities of surface texture and colour through the process of multi firing are vast and the results often totally unexpected.

My sculptures are an exploration of my passion for texture, patterns and experimentations with light. I love repetition. Although in each series of my work pieces are all similar and connected, each one is hand-made and unique if only by a small difference.

A few years ago I developed a new material to make large lightweight wall tiles that I found out later had advantages as a medium for art. I call it Artis Fiberclay. It feels like stone in texture and looks like terracotta except it is light and a kiln is not needed.

Lately the use of stencils has played a major part with Marilyn's decorating method. Marilyn creates handmade tiles from porcelain clay, stencils on a silhouette, then with the use of an aged technique (sgraffito) and reductive shading, she is able to portray her vision.
