Hailing from the Sunshine Coast in QLD, Mel makes each and every single piece herself, using custom glazes and firing in a kiln powered by solar to reduce the need for fossil fuel in production. Her work is a study in small and large pieces that are tactile, earthy, and contemporary.
This body of work represents the human form, celebrating the strength of our similarities while embracing our individuality. Additions, cutouts and carvings mimic our learnings as well as the physical and emotional scars that leave us altered but even more beautiful than before.
