Ebony Russell: Artist in Focus
Since welcoming Ebony Russell to the Modern Times fold earlier this year – and exhibiting her work as part of our show for Melbourne Design Week 2020, Transcendence – we’ve been captivated by her every move. Her approach to ceramics and her distinctive piped pieces have our undivided attention, so it only seems fitting to delve deeper through an Artist in Focus series.
Ebony loves being an artist and has an unrivalled passion for porcelain. The saccharine embellishments, figurines and delicate layers of her piped pieces are all linked to her childhood. By firing these pieces, she gives them a permanence and longevity. In Ebony’s words, she’s recreating and solidifying her childhood dreams, driven by the notion of nostalgia.
