Collection: SHELLIE CHRISTIAN

Shellie is a Central Coast sculptor ceramicist expressing her life and soul connection with the land through earth-inspired forms. 'I use natural elements found in the local bushland and coastline too create ceramics that evoke the oneness of land, people and our environment'. That is what matters most – the bonds we have with each other, entwined with our deep-rooted connection with nature. You can find some surprising markings and finishes in Shellie's work, created by using materials like pods, sticks, seeds and wire. "I intuitively use them to extend the still form and echo the movement and energy I see in nature, mirroring the rustic elegance of the Australian bush"  Shellie's love of Australian birds and wildlife is a theme present in all of her sculptures. Shellie hopes her art will inspire respect for these beautiful animals and their habitat protection.

A story illustrated by creativity

From the moment my hands first held clay, I haven’t stopped making, experimenting, learning, discovering and testing. I love the diversity of clay and the possibilities it offers. The excitement of how the clay responds to my touch and the movement I can obtain from it are magnetic for me. My evolution as a ceramic artist is a journey illustrated by creativity. I’ve always crafted with my hands, from mixed media painting to collage and floristry, before I stumbled on the local Potters Society. And in that very first meeting with clay, a soul connection was ignited. Over the next five years, I studied my statement of attainment, diploma and advanced diploma in Visual Arts at TAFE, always sculpting, shaping and sharing my wonder at nature’s beauty in each piece I make.
