Slab Built Cup
Slab built ceramic mug with embossed stitched detail by NSW based artist Clare Unger.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Clare Unger studied Fine Art at The University of Cape Town, majoring in print making. While living in London she attended ceramics classes and has since completed a Diploma and an Advanced Diploma in Ceramics through TAFE NSW. Clare now works from her Turramurra studio.
Clare Unger combines hand stitching and ceramics in a way that is both playful and pleasurable. She explores narratives relating to family, identity and memory while being mindful that behind the façade of beauty that hand stitched textiles portray, there is a hidden and sometimes dark history of women. Testing and trialling of different materials and techniques are crucially important in the development of Clare's work – this includes testing different fabrics, stitching threads and designs, and the development of glazes that enhance the surface details.
