Thrilled to be featured in the Sunday Age Home Style Magazine over the weekend…the article featured in 'Editor’s picks’ talks about my exclusive ceramic range at the NGV as part of the 18th Century Porcelain sculpture exhibition. So thankful for such a beautiful write up; if you have a chance, check out the range in the design store and also visit the amazing exhibition as well as some inspiring work by Andy Warhol and Ai WeiWei!
"TRACKING TALENT - by Veronica Ridge
The National Gallery of Victoria's initiative commissioning local makers who take inspiration from its collection has unearthed some terrific talent. Grace Brown, a Melbourne-based ceramicist with a background in fashion design, has drawn on a range of antiquities and postmodern furniture.
The result is fresh, glossy white raku clay utensils and ornaments with highlights in pastel blues, pinks and a pop of navy blue.

The range deserves applause for its bold and energetic vibe that pays homage to the Bauhaus and Memphis design movements through strong geometry and contrasting curved and rigid lines, as well as an emphasis on wild pattern and texture.
