Today we launch a short and sweet two-part video series, in partnership with the Regional Centre for Culture 2018. We’ve worked with the RCC to introduce two very different makers working on Dja Dja Wurrung Country in Central Victoria, starting with ceramicist Emma Jimson!
After studying and working in ceramics for 20 years, it wasn’t until Emma moved to the Central Victoria area 9 years ago that she found the time and space to focus on her own practice. Pom-me-Granite is the name of her small studio, where she creates distinct slip-cast vessels which reference the unique textures found in nature. With a particular passion for fermenting, Emma is known for her handmade fermenting vessels, designed with the perfect proportions and air gap for optimal results!
The four municipalities which make up the RCC (Greater Bendigo, Central Goldfields, Hepburn and Mount Alexander) are known for their vibrant creative communities, and will host a range of events spotlighting local creatives throughout 2018. Emma is part of the Castlemaine Clay Collective, which will be hosting ‘ClayStation’, a program of talks and workshops by ceramic artists based in and around Castlemaine.
Castlemaine Clay Collective’s project, ‘ClayStation’ is one of many artist lead projects supported by Creative Victoria as part of Regional Centre for Culture 2018. You can sign up to their mailing list, here!
