Saturday Talks: JOHN DALY, artist, reCLAYm

Join artist John Daly as he discusses his foyer exhibition, reCLAYm.

Throughout history, potters have reclaimed their trimmings from broken, unfired pots, reprocessing them into fresh clay for the potter’s wheel. Cowra-based ceramic artist John Daly seeks to find other materials that can be redirected from landfill and transformed by the kiln into something new, and calls for artists to play their small part in the ecological challenge presented by waste materials.

While the huge challenges that humanity must overcome in the coming decades cannot be solved solely by artists, Daly highlights that they do possess one vital characteristic that will be crucial in turning the tide: Creativity.

Using the transformative power of the kiln to reclaim and reuse waste materials, the resulting works in reCLAYm are a manifesto for an innovative and environmentally aware approach to art making. Daly aims to inspire others to creatively reuse that which was considered useless, and to add his own ripples to this new wave of action and debate amongst artistic practitioners.
