All my pieces are individual, usable and made in my home studio. They are either built entirely by hand or thrown on my wheel. No mass production.
Nature is my Muse, my constant Guru. I draw my inspiration from her. And as an expert in Life Drawing, I also elicit inspiration from the female nude.
In my latest ceramic collection, The Sacred Feminine Goddesses (https://glenladegaard.com/goddessguides-cards/), I free draw each image from one of my paintings/drawings onto a clay vessel and then layer the glazes by hand. This is an absolute labour of love and expertise I’ve honed through 25 years.
Glaze blending is my ‘thing’ and I make all my own. Through dedicated experimental blending of glazes which are carefully matched to the clay body they will adorn, I arrive at something close to reflecting the intricate beauty of nature. As can be seen in the collection of tower vases on Perigian Beach.
Each functional piece of art is an elegant, timeless way to bring natural elements and beauty into your home, office or as a treasured gift.
If you’re near Eumundi, do call me for a private viewing of my working studio.
With Gratitude, Glen
