Karen Steenbergen Ceramics

I try to do a heap of glaze tests in every glaze firing: here is a random bunch from todays kiln opening. Some interesting results: some to try again higher up in the kiln, and some inspiration for the next batch of test combinations. #ceramics #ceramic #clay #glazetesting #glaze #craftcontemporary ...

Big day today: Master Jasper’s 2nd birthday today: he’s a big dog now: 🐕🐕

And this one from Michelle: looking forward to being a part of the journey of each student/artist over the next 3 months.

Posted @withregram • @oceantrough Pushing out of my comfort zone! Today I started working on some bits and pieces for a group exhibition! Yup. I know. Not an artist 😳- but have found the courage to experiment with some thing I love. Clay. Nature. Stories. Engaging others. Thank you @karensteenbergen_ceramics for being such a wonderful teacher and mentor. Stay tuned. 🙏🏽💜

Big thanks to Zoey @zoeydevaney_fineart for inspiring a group of my ceramic students to get their work out into the public by applying for an exhibition at Hoop Gallery in Torquay for the month of December 2023, and being successful. Very exciting, and many other mixes of emotions. But mainly excitement about the possibilities. So we are off and running now with only 3 months til bump in, let the research, development and creating commence. More progress posts to come.
This one is from Zoey.

Some exciting things in the mix. These gorgeous little pots are some testers that will be featured in an upcoming exhibition I have organised for myself and some fabulous ladies I have meet on my pottery journey here in Australia. With the guidance and expertise of our fabulous teacher @karensteenbergen_ceramics our Exhibition ’Unearthed’ goes on display end of Nov. Watch this space.

I am very excited to announce that after a year in the making, 19 artists are about to unveil their ‘Collaborations’ at the opening on Saturday 23rd September, 2023, 2-4pm at Anglesea Art Space.

It’s going to be a visually unexpected exhibition, with lots of mixed mediums: I don’t want to give away too much now, so come along to see what the ‘duos’ of artist have created together, and hear the stories of their collaborative journeys.

Totally agree with @keaneceramics: this event is not to be missed.

I am very excited to be a part of this fabulous weekend, showcasing lots of new bespoke pieces.
Pop it in your diary now.
It will be a plethora of ceramics, and just in time for Christmas or just indulge to make your home hygge. ‘Cosy and comfortable’ Danish culture, the Danes are the happiest on earth, so they know something about Hygge. And a new ceramic piece would add a dose of ‘cosy’ to any home.

Posted @withregram • @keaneceramics THREE DAY CLAY • @threedayclay This October 28 & 29 @threedayclay with the support of @keaneceramics bring you Melbourne Ceramic Fair 2023.

Day 2 of the Surf Coast Arts Trail ...

37 3

As well as opening my studio/shop for the Surf Coast Arts Trail extravaganza this weekend,
I also have some bespoke sculptural vessels inspired by the ‘Highplains Seasons’, in the ‘Everything Matters’ Geelong Sculptors Exhibition at Eagles Nest Gallery in Aireys Inlet.
If you are not too exhausted from cruising around all the open studios: why not end your day with a champers at the Opening/Meet the artists event from 4-6pm on Saturday afternoon at Eagles Nest.
The group exhibition is open for 2 months, from tomorrow if you’d like to get a sneak peak. Lots of intriguing sculptures to peruse. @eaglesnestgallery

Only 5 days to go til I swing open the studio/shop door for the Surf Coast Arts Trail 2023.
Follow the new KARsT ceramics flags and pink flags, all the way from the Famers Market on Merrijig Drive, (pick up your coffee there on the way, on Saturday), go past the skatepark, then turn right into Scott Avenue, then left into Centreside Drive then right into WILSON St, and look out for the flag out the front of Number 16, on the left. I will be there to greet you with some yummy snacks, to keep you going.
There will be lots of demonstrations by some of my regular students throughout the weekend: new work to purchase from the new shop front, a seconds sale and some
August 5/6th. 10am to 4pm each day.
Check in with the QR code at each studio to go into the draw for $250 vouchers: the more studios you visit, the greater the chance to win.
See you on Saturday or Sunday.
