Naarm/Melbourne-based ceramic artist, Cinda Manins, operates a contemporary studio practice of fine art. Anchored in her personal philosophies of humanism and wabi-sabi, her abstract sculptural works sit in serene stillness as homage to time passed. She is drawn to focus on landscape to express her love of the Earth, her grief and distress over the effects of climate change, and her recognition the the planet will endure beyond humanity. Her works explore form and 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.
Works pictured below are available for purchase.
