About the artist

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.
