Solis Cup in cast stoneware and lustre interior by Perth based artist Studio Mulders.
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Annemieke Mulders studied and worked in science while taking evening classes in art. About ten years of sculpture with Cor Dam in Delft, the Netherlands, various painting classes since her move to Australia in 1999, and more recently various pottery and ceramic classes.
For her functional ware she makes symmetric shapes in clay and distorts them in a controlled manner, and uses those to make bowls and cups. She finds the shapes that emerge fascinating as they combine the artificial symmetric form with the plastic distortion of the clay. Afterwards she may carve the surface, add on pieces of clay or combine items together.
She develops glazes that remain vibrant after the high firing temperature necessary for durable functional ware. Her aim is to create a surface where the layered glazes interact with the carved surface and start to resemble an abstract painting. Using a palette that is inspired by the amazing coast and outback Australian landscape.
