Kim Waters (nee Elliott class of ‘83)
At school I had a reputation of always being late to my next class (usually maths) and my love for clay and wheel throwing has endured. Spending so much extra time in what was known as Craft House in the garage.
Clay has always been my “thing”. As a medium it is responsive and versatile. I love the fact that it can be used in so many different ways. Since graduation from Chisholm Institute (now Monash University) with a Bachelor of Fine Art – Ceramics, I have produced a wide variety of work. From Large 40 Kg garden pots at a brickworks in Tasmania, to fine raku fired porcelain for exhibitions and domestic ware for homeware shops, I enjoy all aspects of clay and the one aspect of teaching that I enjoy the most is sharing my love of Ceramics with my art students at CGGS.
My great interest is wheel throwing and I like to use the traditional shapes of the works of ancient Greek and Roman potters with my own twist. My work often includes textured parts and combinations of wheel thrown and hand built components.
In this work I have experimented with a marbling technique that was developed after marbling paper for another project. An earthernware clay, with a clear glaze that enhances the decoration and a finished result reminiscent of images of planets from a distance.
