CINDA MANINS

Ceramics Studio

In my ceramics practice I am exploring the concepts of temporality, permanence and impermanence, and the relationship of humanity to the earth.

The construction of each ceramic piece is guided by the qualities of the material, and the philosophies of Humanism and Wabi-sabi. My forms are sculptural, and some are created as ikebana vessels. 

I assemble landscapes using repeated abstract forms, and am exploring digital projection using images of plants and rocks on my installations. 

I am drawn to focus on landscape to express my love of the Earth, my grief and distress over the effects of climate change, and a recognition that the planet will endure beyond humanity. Landscape is the ideal vehicle to explore form, texture and wonder at the scale of time and how Earth stores its memory.

My studio is located on the lands of the Boon Wurrung People of the Kulin Nation and I recognise that Aboriginal sovereignty was never ceded. I pay my respects to their Spirits, Ancestors and Elders, past and present, and extend this respect to all First Nations Peoples across the lands and waters on which I visit, live, work and make.
