Electric Blue Dry Glaze
About the artist
Inspired by a short hobby course in ceramics many years ago, Shabbi developed a love of clay. The smell, the feel and the positive outcomes of working with clay were fundamental in her passion to create forms reflecting nature.
Her passion to re-create the beautiful rock formations nature has provided, the rock pools, pebbles and the native bushland are evident in her sculptural pieces.
Shabbi applies unique techniques to achieve her tactile and organic finishes.
Sheworks entirely by hand using coils of gritty clay to build her pots. The pots are finished with mediums such as seaweed, copper wire, salt, salt laden bandages and ferric chloride then fired in a saggar which is often, simply, alfoil.
