Showcase #25: Sandra Bowkett

When: Fri, 7 Feb – Sun, 3 May 2020
Where: Shepparton Art Museum, 70 Welsford Street, Shepparton

Showcase #25: Sandra Bowkett, Clay // Fire is a collection of ceramic vessels that explore and make visible the energy of wood-firing on earth materials.

⁠ ⁠ Interestingly, these Showcase pieces were fired at Sandra's home studio in Tallarook, in a wood-fired kiln she built herself in 2013. ⁠ ⁠

Many of you will know Sandra's name as her work has been for sale in the SAM shop for many years. The SAM Showcase allows her to experiment further with presentation in a gallery setting. The installation includes elements from the firing process, including bricks and kiln inserts, and gives you a great insight into the creation of these beautiful vessels.⁠ ⁠Collectors of Bowkett’s work will be excited to learn the pieces in the SAM Showcase are also available to purchase. ⁠
