Earlier this year I had the good fortune to work with Sandra Bowkett and Ann Ferguson on a Crosshatched project, a collaboration with Rajhastani potters Manahor Lal and Dharmveer. At the time I documented the event on the Pan Gallery blog but more recently an article, written by Sandra, Ann and myself, has been published online by The Australian Ceramics Association. Please click here if you would like to see the article.
One spectacular aspect of this event was the opportunity to visit Sandra's property in Tallarook, where the potters worked side by side, creating and firing the magnificent mudka (traditional water pots) and Tallarook Stacks. Thought this might be a good time to share some photos I took on the day.
Sandra and Ann continue to work with the potters and I believe a project in India is set for early 2012. Keep an eye on Sandra's website to follow the development of this fantastic cross cultural collaboration.
