Grace Brown of Oh Hey Grace creates a mix of functional and sculptural pieces from her Melbourne studio using a combination of wheel-thrown and hand-building techniques. Grace originally trained and worked as a Fashion Designer before swapping fabric for clay. As a result, ‘Oh Hey Grace’ was born in 2015, and Grace now crafts a mix of homewares alongside otherworldly sculptures.
Inspiration for much of her work stems from a fascination with dislocated civilisations, lost cities and dystopian futures. Grace aims to transport her viewer to a mysterious, dream-like realm, where labyrinth-like buildings warp into geometric stairwells, smooth adobe domes, and curved archways.
Her M.C Escher inspired maze-like sculptures act as portal to escape the daily grind, reminding us to slow down and become lost in miniature metropolises. Many of her pieces encourage playful interaction, offering a way to connect art and mindfulness into our daily lives.
The Oh Hey Grace studio creates on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri people, and we pay respect to elders both past, present, and emerging. We acknowledge that sovereignty has never been ceded. A percentage of each sale is donated to the Pay the Rent initiative. You can find our more information or donate here.
