Collection: Szilvassy

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.

Having spent much of her childhood in the lush landscapes of Northern New South Wales, a connection to nature not only inspired her, but directly informs her practice.

Her hands are not just in the clay, but also in the earth, where she digs and hand processes her materials.
