About the work:

Black Vessel with Gold Lugs I by Ebony Russell.

This piece is part of Talismans, Rafts, Mementosa group exhibition showcasing the work of the entire community of Modern Times artists. Throughout 2020 artists used their practice to make sense of what was happening, and this show celebrates this rich vein of creative output.

“During lockdown I began making small hand pinched vessels. Every morning I would take a ball of clay and shape it into a pot, a small hand-made meditation to give me focus and keep me centred. These small vessels mark the days of uncertainty and hold hopes for the future,” says Ebony.

About the Artist:

Ebony Russell is an Australian artist currently based in Sydney. Her work focuses on notions of nostalgia and desire imbued in collected objects. Using an experimental construction method to produce sculptures made solely of piping, a technique usually reserved for the cake decorating craft of royal icing, she has developed a process that allows her to create forms that seem to defy their own making.
