‘The pursuit of beauty through poetry of form.’

~

/SILL-VAA-SHI/ ORIGIN – HUNGARY MEANING – SILVER PLUM

Szilvassy is the Melbourne ceramic studio of artist Shari Lowndes.

Each work endeavours to blur the line between artefact and everyday object;

where personal stories and site-specific materials are embedded.

Drawing upon a deeply personal connection to the Australian landscape –

Shari is inherently influenced by her nomadic upbringing and family’s migration to Australia

following the 1952 Egyptian Coup D’état.

Her work embodies a spiritual belief that we are not owners of the land,

merely custodians.
