Showcase #16: Susan Frost

Until - 28 Jan 2018

Susan Frost’s minimalist forms explore subtle gradations of colour and tone.

Through meticulous glazing techniques, she creates an evolving spectrum of hues that span rich creams and lemon yellows, through to vintage greens and inky blues. This palette is applied to the surfaces of an unfolding progression of functional vessels in varying sizes that have been wheel thrown in Lumina porcelain. Frost uses the evocative properties of colour to highlight the sculptural qualities of form, which she exploits to its fullest potential with interlocking works that stack and nest together.

For Showcase #17, Frost has expanded her practice with the introduction of surface decoration. Geometric structures, repetitive patterning and grids are executed with a restrained precision and used to create a cohesive whole.
