Murrays Cottage

Kaye Pemberton taught secondary art in South Australia for seven years before concentrating full time on her ceramic practice, completing a Diploma of Fine Art (Ceramics) at the Australian National University in 2001.

Working predominantly from her home studio in Canberra, Pemberton’s practice essentially consists of the manufacture of domestic ware. Four weeks in Hill End will give Pemberton the opportunity to ‘step back’ from her daily practice and develop a body of new work focusing on historic tools. This will serve as a catalyst for Pemberton to challenge both her current practice, and create a dialogue between use and perceived use.
