Pauline Meade Ceramics
Coming from a childhood where art was considered to be only about drawing, Pauline had been searching for a tactile way to use her hands to express her emotions and create, moving through various crafts until beginning evening classes at a nearby ceramic studio, firstly in hand building then later on wheel throwing. Skills were acquired but it was knowledge she needed to understand and partake fully in the craft.
She has been using clay since as her chosen medium, completing a Diploma of Ceramics in 2007. Over the last 6 years she has committed to extending her practise at School of Clay and Art [SOCA} in Melbourne.
She has an affinity for female artists, and how they have been perceived throughout history, their work often obfuscated and overlooked. Past works focused on the paintings of Margaret Olley. Her current sculptural works draw from emotions felt by her observations of Clarice Beckett's paintings.
Pauline has been awarded the Pat Emery Award and First Prize as part of the Association of Sculptors, both in Victoria. She was a finalist in the 2022 Clunes Ceramic Award , which she was acknowledged with a Judges Recognition Award, Most recently her work has featured at Fortyfive Downstairs and Tacit Gallery in Melbourne. Her work has been featured in The Journal of Australian Ceramics.
