Wellington-based ceramicist Evelyn Hodowany is a finalist in this year's Portage Ceramic Awards. Well known for taking inspiration from everyday objects - she received a Merit for her 2022 Portage Ceramics Award collection depicting toilet rolls in ceramics - her new work Procrastination 2, is a study of those never-ending to-do lists immortalised in porcelain.
I asked Evelyn five questions about her new collection, procrastination in general and what she's working on next.
The stage is set for an unmissable summer of the arts. As Te Whanganui-a-Tara prepares to come alive with the sounds, shapes and scenes of trailblazing theatre, dance, music and more, take the time to get to grips with a programme of performances that are sure to put the spotlight on the contemporary arts.
Elisabeth Vullings is a Kāpiti Coast-based artist who has been a finalist in the Parkin Drawing Prize four times, securing a highly commended award In 2020. The Kilns Project will open at Toi Mahara Kāpiti Coast District Gallery in early 2024 and will showcase Elisabeth's first foray into ceramics.
I caught up with Elisabeth and asked her five questions about the exhibition and the new direction she's taking with her work.
