Catherine and Warren Ogden’s latest body of functional and figurative ceramic works engage viewers with a sense of time, process, history and alchemy. The quietude of the exhibition commands the space, carrying the histories of the works’ creation and materiality.

Exhibition opening 6pm Friday 10 June | View the exhibition invitation here.
