Greg and John Daly: In Conversation
Thu 7 March at 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Focusing on developments and changes in Australian ceramics over the last 50 years this discussion will cover approaches in technique, making, firing and the market. Greg and John will also discuss the history of Greg’s collection, its themes and what motivates a maker to collect.
Drawn from the collection of ceramicist Greg Daly, A Maker’s Collection is a rich display of more than 160 ceramics collected throughout Daly’s life, from 12th century Sung ceramics and 18th century French lustre work to contemporary ceramics from Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, and New Zealand.
