Every piece of Kerryn Levy’s ceramic work is hand-built using Australian stoneware.

This work is part of Kerryn Levy’s latest series, The Moon, She Calls to Her Daughters. This collection is a captivating exploration of anthropomorphic artistry, comprising sculptural vessels and wall sculptures inspired by Ley Line’s adaptation of the Brazilian folk song “Ciranda.” Informed by the lyrical richness of “Ciranda,” Levy’s work extends beyond the auditory to visually embody the inherent connection between the human body and the surrounding landscape.

Kerryn says of her work: “I listened to this song repeatedly as I made works in my studio and felt enticed by the vision of women being drawn to the water under the moonlight, gathering – it felt powerful, mysterious, and magical.

“Each piece is built slowly and methodically using individually rolled coils, starting with a flat base, and working my way up until I’m happy with the form. Similarly, the wall sculptures begin as a sketch in clay and are then built upwards and closed over. My finger marks can be seen in the finished work, naturally forming a pattern on the surface of the clay, and providing a visual representation of the making process. Each object has an inherent connection to the human body and the landscape whence they came.”
