The Art and Science of Ceramics                                                              

When: Friday 12 September 2014, 3 - 5pm
Venue: Lawrence Wilson Art Gallery, The University of Western Australia
Attend: FREE. RSVP essential. Register online

Join us for a discussion between Associate Professor Andrew Rate from the School of Earth and Environment and ceramic artists Andrea Vinkovic and Stephanie Hammill.

The use of clay as both artistic medium and source of scientific enquiry will form the basis of this discussion. Andrew Rate has conducted the specific analytical application of Powder X-ray Diffraction on selected clay and glaze materials used by exhibiting artists. Some of this has been collected from diverse areas of the state.

The results are to be revealed in conversation with the artists who offer their own perspectives in relation to their artistic practice.

This FREE symposium is presented by The School of Earth and Environment - Campus Partner for HERE&NOW14.

And for those who are too far away to see the exhibition, here is a selection of images.
