Ian at work

Within the realm of ceramics, Ian Grieve specialises in combining hand-building and thrown works whilst enjoying the challenge of clay sculpture.

In his unique Australian series of contemporary art pieces, Ian draws upon the environment as his inspiration. These pieces evoke symbolic imagery and establish a dialogue with the viewer that projects beyond the visual impression.

Peace Pot

The Peace Pot was selected for the World Competition of Arts and Crafts Kanazawa 1999 in Japan. A thrown and handbuilt work, the pot features six male and female heads rising from an ocean-inspired glaze. The pot represents a universal hope for world peace. Each of the heads is covered with copper gold, representing the rich diversity of human kind and the precious nature of each individual within.
