Ian Dowling Potter and Sculptor

Ian has worked with clay and fire for most of his life. The Margaret River based artist continues to explore the world of ceramics.

As large projects are moved to the background, Ian returns to making individual pieces, functional and sculptural. 
Form and Surface continue to intrigue, with a particular search for things that give a closer connection to the location, Wardandi Boodja.
As always, patterns are involved; progressive patterns that change and evolve to give a sense of movement. 

Observation is a key role of the artist. Keeping an eye on what is happening in our place helps to show how interdependent our world is.

Each project has some connection with rhythmic pattern possibilities, using many related shapes and their arrangement to identify place.
