Wild Things

~ 6 July – 25 August 2019

Liz Sharek

~ Wild Things

~ Matakana-based artist Liz Sharek ~ brings her latest experiments in clay and glaze ~ to the Studio Gallery ~ where she’s transformed the space into something ~ … gloriously wild!

Step into the Studio Gallery for this show, and experience a little bit of Liz’s opulent side. Bright organic flower forms nestled in dense, bush-like foliage burst through experimental glazes and forms, complete with roughly sawn organic log plinths.

Liz has supported The Vivian for many years, and in this, her first ever solo show with us, Liz has transformed typical standard glazes with Magnesium Carbonate and Copper to perform her own experimental alchemy on these works. The results are delightful, exuberant, and decadently tactile works to cherish and covet.
