About the work:
Masterplanning A Village 1, Ceramic Sculpture by Cassie Hansen.
This original artwork is part of Cassie Hansen’s 2022 Artist in Focus series ‘Scale and Assembly’, a collection of wall mounted ceramic works which explore architectural materiality and composition, inspired by the ancient clay tablets that were used to write stories, poetry and fables, and record events and laws.
“In my series, the clay is left unglazed in order to emphasise the textures and graphic shapes, as well as reference the unfired nature of the ancient clay tablets… These present-day artefacts record architectural messages – messages of scale and assembly, texture and shape, composition and form – intended to be preserved forever,” says Hansen.
About the Artist:
Cassie Hansen (b. 1986) is a ceramicist working on Taungurung country (Kyneton), creating midfire and stoneware vessels, jugs and objects. Her work is inspired by the simplified forms and linear qualities of architecture and the built environment, as well as the shadows and compositions captured in architectural photography.
