Tania Rollond is a passionate artist working with clay for over 20 years. She took her BA degree studying ceramics at the National Art School in Sydney, and finished at the Sydney College of Fine Art in 2000. Driven by a drawing mentality and the fascination for the intuitive and playful, she decided to establish her own namesake studio in the Southern Highlands of NSW, Australia.
Presented series of ceramic pots, with the title “A flickering moment…” is a spectacular outcome of Tania’s observations of insignificant moments, taking place in a small town backyard.
Her working process begins with the observations. She examines common objects, like leaves, rocks, insects and plants and find the natural patterns, colours, structures, random markings of decay. All described by the artist as a “fleeting impressions”. She transforms this inspirations on the surface of ceramic pieces and reconfigure them into new forms and arrangements. “Each drawing is a spontaneous journey, without erasure - I start anywhere and then find my way slowly, each line responding to the previous one. The bowl or bottle provides a framework, and a contained space where my exploration can take place," shares the thoughts about the process of creating Tania. The final pieces amaze with its simplicity and naturalness. They give an impression of primary objects, and are a messenger across time.
