September to October 2016
Abbey Jamieson was our EASS residency award winner from 2016. During
her three month residency Jamieson concentrated on developing her forms from her graduating show at ANU. Her desire was to soda fire her completed work using Canberra Potters own soda kiln. The end results were beyond the artist’s expectations and resulted in a strong and well-considered body of work.
The artist talk as part of this residency was well attended with Jamieson giving the audience insight into the process and pitfalls associated with soda firing. Her work has certainly encouraged others to consider soda firing for their next project.
