Hilary Green is a ceramic artist and painter based in Melbourne who has been exhibiting and practicing for over 10 years. She creates ceramic art pieces that are inspired by the sea, shell fragments found on the sand as well as the shapes and shadows of rocks. She studied Bachelor of Fine Art at RMIT with a focus on photography and drawing.
In her work, Green explores organic forms and imperfection through her drawing practice and translates them into functional stoneware sculptures. She is especially interested in the tactility of clay and how she can create the sense of fluidity and movement, leaving imprints of the hand in its hardened state. Green's sculptural forms manifest mystical ancient shapes mixed with modern colours, playful positions and textures, whilst remaining functional to represent timeless domesticity.
