Heather Wilson is a talented ceramic sculptor whose work encompasses dragons, birds, fish and many other subjects. We often feature her work in the Garden Gallery and she has had a number of exhibitions in the gallery at Bulleen Art & Garden
“Animals have always fascinated me and have been part of my work for more than 20 years. Whether appearing as dragons or exotic birds, most of my images have a basis in nature. Sometimes it is just a characteristic or a quirky gesture that will inspire a piece, sometimes a photograph or a drawing done at the zoo or a museum.
Since the early 80s I have exhibited regularly in Melbourne and have had several one man shows. I have also had larger works in the Moreland sculpture show. I have a B Ed Art & Craft, have taught art and travelled extensively.
All of my work is hand built from earthenware of porcelain clay. Each is unique and they may be similar, but never the same. Most vessels are coil built, and dragons are constructed on their bases”
