botanic: an exhibition of ceramics by Ayesha Aggarwal
botanic is an exhibition of ceramic works by Adelaide based ceramicist Ayesha Aggarwal at Brown’s General Store in Paddington.
Inspired by the intricacies of the plants Ayesha creates one of a kind, functional ceramics featuring bright and bold botanic designs. She is particularly drawn to large tropical leaves which remind her of her childhood and Australian natives which are unlike anything she had ever seen before coming to Australia.
Using a variety of techniques from wheel-throwing to slab-building she creates a canvas for herself before painting each one and carving into it to add detail. The pots are then fired before being glazed and fired for a second time. The entire process is completely organic so no two pots are ever exactly alike. ‘botanic’ will see her debuting her brand new plant inspired earrings for the very first time.
