WanD @ Raw Cloth
David’s work is inspired by traditional ceramic forms and figures, and his interpretation of ceramic sculpture emanates from an eclectic approach to contemporary design. For the series of works displayed at Raw Cloth, he has been exploring areas of vases which are usually not seen as relevant (the base and the rim), experimenting with their decorative and sculptural aspects to enhance the total forms. The overlay of local pebbles and stones accentuates the Northern Territory influence, highlighting the dominance of earth in the local landscape.
David Kerr is a ceramicist who has been working in the field for over 35 years. He gained his Diploma of Fine Art (Ceramics) in 1988 and since then has exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions in Ballarat and Melbourne in Victoria.
His work has always been hand-built terracotta and began as intuitive forms which have gradually evolved over the years into decorative minimalism.
Most recently David has relocated to Darwin in the Northern Territory where his work has continued to evolve with his new surroundings enhancing his individual design aesthetic.
