Bonnie Hislop is a ceramicist specialising in hand building and ceramic illustration. Grounded in technical skill, her practice has evolved from creating illustrative planter pots to large scale sculptural work. Hislop uses her forms to critically engage with the world around her and documents the human experience.
Working from her studio in Yeerongpilly, Hislop meticulously hand crafts her forms through an involved and often uncertain process that comes with working with this medium. Uniting bright colours and satirical shapes to engage her audience in a dialogue with the physical world around them. Her work intersects traditional representations of ceramics with a craft aesthetic to create a contemporary interpretation of the ceramic medium.
