A second-generation maker, Damon Moon is one of Australia’s most respected and prolific ceramicists.
Inspired by the beautiful gentle space of the Sinclair Gallery and CAM’s facade, Moon responds to architecture, pottery and process, creating a poetic and contemporary recast of the past.
“The past is not separate from the present. In making work for this exhibition I was able to use genuine tools, models and moulds to recreate and then re-interpret period-correct objects. For someone who loves clay and has spent literally a lifetime in its company, this is a real treat.” Damon Moon 2020
