Out of the Ashes — Woodfired Ceramics
Chester Nealie

Kerrie Lowe Gallery
28 July – 21 August 2017

Born in New Zealand and living for many years in Australia, Chester has worked with clay for over six decades. The pots in this exhibition were all fired for sixty hours in his multi-chamber kiln at Goanna Ridge, Gulgong during 2017. The firing team was Chester Nealie, Elena Renker (NZ), Susie McMeekin and Kwirak Choung.

“It’s a sensuous process, working with clay. It’s soft, it’s malleable, it’s seductive. It’s a love process… It’s exciting but it’s quiet… It leaves the movement of emotion that’s in you all the time.” — Chester Nealie
