Carmel Lumley

Playing with ideas and mud! What’s not to like? In ceramics, the visual and tactile combine at every stage of the process.

The physicality of using mud and my hands supplies a creative counterpoint to the conceptual basis of my art-making.

I love to explore abstract ideas such as change, using concrete visual metaphors. Constructing installations of multiples is central to my practice, and simple forms are hand-built or slip-cast. Complexity and specificity are then provided by colour, carving and gloss.

I live in Brisbane producing ceramics primarily for exhibition, and aim to create a calm and playful gallery space.
