Form and Shape is an exhibition featuring two Sydney-based artists. Both artists are currently undertaking Advanced Diploma in Ceramics, displaying very different styles and techniques.

Dana Lundmak (B.A. (UNSW); Diploma in Fine Arts; Diploma in Ceramics) creates sculptural, functional and decorative forms incorporating her years of painting knowledge into 3-dimensional objects. She enjoys the process of carving and altering hand-built and thrown forms.  Her Paris Rooftops series is a result of spending time in Paris and creating paintings of the iconic Paris skyline.  Dana’s paintings have been exhibited in the Salon des Refuses, 6 times finalist in the Portia Geach Portrait Awards, and in various group and solo exhibitions.  Her ceramics have been exhibited at Kerrie Lowe Gallery; Mosman Gallery, Manly Gallery, Mu Gallery, Breathing Colours, Harbour Sculpture, Sculpture in the Glen, Bayside, amongst others.  Dana was a finalist in the 2017 NSW Emerging Artist Craft Award.

Jules Irving: Certificate III Ceramics, Hornsby TAFE; Diploma in Ceramics, Hornsby TAFE.

"When I first touched clay, I knew I’d found my medium. It allows me to explore the intrinsic human need for touch and deep desire for belonging.  I hand-build my pieces and then spend a great deal of time burnishing to give me the perfect surface for applying terra sigillata on my pieces prior to raku firing.  I also black-fire many of my pieces.  My current work is inspired by Picasso’s ceramics.  I want it to “manifest” a sense of touch and humour required to heal the soul and mind.  Some vessels are double-sided faces and bodies expressing a multitude of emotions.  My Blue Planter series is inspired by rock pools and the lost gumtrees at Avoca beach."

Jules has been exhibiting in group shows (Kerrie Lowe Gallery; Gosford Regional Gallery; Breathing Colours Gallery; Kuringai Arts Centre amongst others) and was a finalist in the Ewart Art Prize, (highly commended) 2018; Gosford Ceramic Prize, 2017; Ryde Women’s Art Prize, 2015.
