“RAINE EDWARDS,  POTTER, SCULPTOR, basketmaker

I specialize in limited edition sculpture, Pottery and Clay Masks. My vessels have women either sculptured or painted on them.I love bright colours and my women have bright clothing, hair and jewellery. I create one-off pieces because I like to make a form that appeals to me at the time of making it; this could be influenced by something I have seen, a girl walking down the street, my own experience as a dancer, a photograph in a magazine, or just my imagination.

I work with a variety of clays and finish with multiple firings of oxide washes, underglazes, dry glazes and acrylics. I have had a love affair with dry glazes over textured surfaces ever since I started studying pottery, but Due to the nature of the glaze on my dry glaze vessels, they are not suitable to hold liquid or food, but these glazes are very beautiful to look at.

I have a Diploma of Arts (ceramics) and am a member of the Box Hill Clayworkers and The Valley Potters
