MATERIALS: LOCAL A Canterbury Paint Box

PRESENTED ON NOV 08, 2018
IN CHRISTCHURCH @ VOL 38

Tatyanna Meharry is an artist, potter and ceramics teacher. Practicing ceramics in a mindful manner with resources that are not renewable is a challenge for any potter and Tatyanna creates her work with this in mind. Firmly believing in the tradition of making objects with their own unique functions that are treasure not trash. In this PechaKucha talk Tatyanna will talk about her journey through the Canterbury landscape collecting and sampling local materials which she uses to create a unique paintbox of colour and texture that grounds her forms integrally in the local landscape.

Materials and Process First

BY STEVEN JUNIL PARK
@ VOL 38 ON NOV 08, 2018

Steven Junil Park started his label '6x4' during his study at Elam School of Fine Arts as a response to the lack of everyday practicality he saw in art objects. He produces everything under the label himself: clothing, shoes, and accessories, with the conviction that materials and processes are more important than the intention of the maker. His pieces are one-offs and often feature handmade buttons, recycled and repurposed textiles, natural dyes, and hand-sewn finishing. He is intent on listening to the memory of materials and doing them justice by crafting them into long-lasting, practical items with integrity.
