KEVALA CERAMICS

  • Gilly Beal


    ARTIST INSPIRATION
    Gilly Beal, a former Bali resident, wanted to capture a design element from the island she loves so much in her ceramics. She always admired the craftsmanship inherent in the traditional Bali Aga baskets - that take months to make and feature a fine, even weave. Taking these as her inspiration, she has created a series of ceramic pieces that pay homage to the beauty of the baskets. Each piece is individually made by hand and is therefore unique, and each design comes in a limited edition of 50.


    ABOUT THE ARTIST
    Singapore-based artist Gilly Beal studied art in London at Kensington & Chelsea College and the Slade. Her work typically makes reference to the 25 years she has spent living in Asia. She often takes traditional techniques and materials and adds a contemporary, Western-influenced spin.

  • Dimity Kidston


    ARTIST INSPIRATION
    Australian textile designer and weaver Dimity Kidston has brought her skills for producing unique and decorative tapestry to the art of ceramics. Dimity has a passion for objects, whether textile or ceramic, to be both beautiful and functional.
    Her current work is inspired by traditional Balinese wood carving and batik, the bright, colourful designs are carved on to the clay using a scrafitto technique. The motifs she uses in her ceramics are naïve, bold and contemporary. A hand-made aesthetic is central to her work, and as each piece is individually carved, no two pieces are the same.


    ABOUT THE ARTIST
    Dimity Kidston has had a long association with decorative objects and art. Growing up in a creative family in rural Australia her passion for beauty and form was nurtured from an early age.
    She studied textiles and ceramics at the Australian National University, where her interest in traditional weaving and tapestry was further developed. She completed her honours at the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, Scotland – a centre of excellence for traditional weaving.
