Sydney, New South Wales, Australia 1927 – 2016
Glebe, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Materials & Technique: ceramics, bowls, stained earthenware stoneware
Peter Travis’s work links the body and the environment in a way that suggests the persistence of organic growth in the harshest of conditions. His ceramics reflect dry, cracked clay riverbeds, harbouring dormant life that will be re-energised with water.
