Denise with her diverse artistic talents gets particularly excited when it comes to “3D design” Hugh with a background in engineering and been fascinated from an early age in the art of the manufactured object has experimented in ceramics and dabbled in the science of clays and glazes. Finally last year, in 2015 the opportunity arose to work in ceramics full-time, resulting in the formation of the creative collaboration Vibe Ceramic Studios,
With an ancestry of craft, master carpenters, stone masons Denise’s work has appeared in numerous solo and group exhibitions within WA and interstate. Concentrating initially on tableware and adhering to a philosophy best described as “art that works”, Vibe Ceramic Studios use hand-mixed slips and their own original glaze formulations to create contemporary pieces which are both practical to use and beautiful to display.
Their stunning pieces appear online here: (https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/VibeCeramicStudios?ref=hdr_shop_menu) however, you can also view a selection of their range and meet the makers themselves at the Old Perth Road Markets. It offers Denise and Hugh an opportunity to engage directly with market goers and the terrific social atmosphere amongst stallholders and visitors makes these events a wonderful way to spend a weekend.
