Robin is a ceramic artist who produces sculptural and functional ceramics in her studio in Katoomba. She works in stoneware gas-fired in reduction.
In early 2016 she spent a month in Japan at tableware producing pottery near Seto. She is always delighted to see people using and enjoying her tableware in their everyday lives.
In her sculptural work, she is inspired by the built environment and the human body, utilizing wheel-thrown forms which are altered and combined. She is interested in the interplay of glazed and unglazed surfaces and in the integration of forms into a whole, whether a group or a single work. Her recent sculptural work was inspired by the old mine site at Lithgow and the artifacts abandoned there.
She has taken part in a number of group shows and in March 2021 featured with print and watercoulour artist Liz Jeneid in a two person show – “All that Remains” at the Shopfront Gallery in Glebe.
In 2019 she was instrumental in starting the annual Blue Mountains Pottery Fair which is a cooperative venture between local potters and Nolan on Lovel Gallery, taking place each autumn. www.bluemountianspotteryfair.com
