ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

Pru Morrison - YESTERDAY'S FAVOURITE

Yesterday’s Favourite honours the two decades of making that have made Pru Morrison one of our community’s most skilled studio potters. With strong technical ability and her trademark wit, Pru comments on Australian politics, history and familiar national identities. 

Sharon Muir - SCENES FOR HEARTS AND FLOWERS / Small Object Space

The instant appeal of Sharon Muir’s retail ceramic collection have made her a popular Brisbane craft identity. Scenes for Hearts and Flowers profiles her distinctly different exhibition practice, where familiar bric-a-brac are reimagined in small ceramic sculptures that evoke sentimentality and wonder.
