About the work:

Heavenly Quarry 2, Ceramic Sculpture in Terracotta with Rust Glaze by Oh Hey Grace.

Heavenly Quarry 2 is named after the historical site Heatherlie Quarry in Gariwerd National Park (The Grampians). “Growing up nearby, I spent a lot of time exploring the area from natural stone formations, to old abandoned buildings. The surfaces I’d find on my adventures have stayed with me. For pieces in this series I have sought to replicate the textural and weathered surface seen on rocks and abandoned buildings,” says Brown.

This sculpture uses a combination of deconstructed wheel-thrown and hand-built components merged together to create a unique sculpture.

About the Artist:

Grace Brown of Oh Hey Grace creates a mix of functional and sculptural pieces using a combination of wheel thrown and hand building techniques. Influenced by geometry, contrasting textures, architectural forms and the work of M.C. Escher, her work is part functional ware and part Utopian cityscapes with labyrinth-like buildings featuring layers of geometric stairwells, sharp lines, smooth adobe domes and archways.
