KIM NOLAN, 'Mission Beach (1)', 2021, Large platter with rock, speckled clay
Kim Nolan is originally from New Zealand and received a Diploma in ‘Hot Glass And Design’ in Whanganui. After moving to Australia in 2007 and settling in Cairns in 2017- she went on to study Ceramics at TAFE Queensland. Nolan is driven by “very simple things in life and nature”, focusing on form, color, texture, and patterns.
"The 'Mission Beach Series' is inspired by the patterns in the sand made by the sand bubbler crabs and the tide coming in.'
"Clay is a wonderful medium to work with, the varieties of clay, the tactile nature of the forming processes, and the unlimited options for decretive finishes. It also gives me the option to introduce glass and techniques from past experiences. I love experimenting and pushing the boundaries of what I thought was possible with my work."
