Well-known Brisbane based ceramic artist Pru Morrison uses her finely crafted porcelain pieces to comment on everyday life in Australia. Drawing on the influences of a variety of sources, from politics to art history, her works are as topical as they are appealing.
Pru has a wonderful way of looking at the world and her work reflects a unique approach to ceramics. She uses brilliant colours combined with text to create a narrative on her ceramic artwork.
“The most enjoyable part of my arts practice is creating an open story, where questions are asked. I spend time sitting in public places watching and noting the mannerisms and quirks of people as they pass by. I record these as quick sketches with words. These are starting points when I am in the studio. Ideas often overlap with observations on current affairs, arts, and politics.” Pru Morrison
