About the convenor

Richilde is a Canberra based emerging artist working with ceramics. Material curiosity orientates Richilde’s practice: she is interested in using clay in a variety of ways to articulate and explore her surroundings. This process has resulted in experimental, gallery based projects, where ceramics are used in spatial installation informed by experience of the natural environment. Richilde also makes functional work under the name Girl Nomad Ceramics.

As a teacher Richilde is especially interested in what the student wants from their time at Canberra Potters. Many people choose a pottery class to unwind and to do something tactile with their hands, others have a specific goal or project in mind. Richilde will facilitate a light hearted and exploratory class whatever a student’s aims.

Richilde received a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Ceramics) from the Australian National University in 2015. For her graduating work Richilde received several Emerging Artist Support Scheme (EASS) Awards, including the Craft ACT Exhibition award, the Strathnairn Arts Inaugural Anita McIntyre Exhibition and Residency award and the Canberra Potters’ Society Residency award.
