Taking its title from Marvin Bell’s 1984 poem Drawn by Stones, by Earth, by Things That Have Been in the Fire, Drawn by stones recognises that the foundations of ceramic practice lie in the earth.

Exhibition curator, Bridie Moran, will present a floor talk on Friday 6 May, from 12:15pm - 1pm to explore the themes and the individual works within Drawn by stones. The talk examines the relevance of ceramic histories, dialogues and interrogations of land, place, sovereignty and ownership across Asia and Australia.
