This exhibition presents an outstanding body of work by one of Australia’s greatest artists working in clay.

Acclaimed ceramicist Prue Venables is the ninth artist in the Australian Design Centre series Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft, which celebrates the achievements of Australia’s most iconic crafts practitioners.

The works of Prue Venables show a true mastery of materials. She demonstrate a profound understanding of porcelain, that most precious and temperamental of clays, whose fine-grain and opaque qualities are expressed in rigorous works of refined detail. The handmade functional artworks possess clarity, luminosity and a quiet beauty.

Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft | Prue Venables is a major Australian Design Centre exhibition that will travel to 13 venues across Australia from 2019 – 2022 as part of ADC On Tour.

Living Treasures: Masters of Australian Craft \ Prue Venables is an Australian Design Centre (ADC On Tour) national touring exhibition, presented with assistance from the Australian Government Visions of Australia program.
