Bettina Willner- Browne’s studio practice is an enquiry in clay and life – she makes objects in the ceramic medium. In 1991 Bettina graduated from a Bachelor of Art at Monash University and has since exhibited in commercial and public galleries across Australia. Previous Art Fair in 2018, Spring 1883 Dutton (New York) presentation, Melbourne. Bettina’s practice considers the connection between material, form, nature, architecture and memory within contemporary ceramics. Organic structures, textural and golden glazes are characteristic of her sculptural pieces, and in combination, produce objects that sit between sculpture, painting and drawing.

I unite architecture, organic, sculptural structures in the ceramic medium. Characteristics of my sculptural pieces include textural and glistening glazes, gestural hand-building techniques, and geometric forms. In 1991, I graduated with a Bachelor of Art at Monash University and have since exhibited in art fairs, commercial and public galleries across Australia. My practice is an inquiry into the material form, concepts of nature, architecture, and memory within contemporary ceramics. This oeuvre takes inspiration from a macro view of washed-up beach matter and Rock formations. Broken shells, coral, lost fishing tackle, and seaweed is conveyed within the structure and surface of the totemic forms. These works came about after I spent many hours walking and photographing discoveries in Gunaikurnai country, the land of the Brataualung people.
