Marine Ostinato premieres at the Australian Ceramics Triennale in Hobart, May 2019.
“For many years I’ve seen the wonder on people’s faces as I’ve started a lump of clay spinning on the potter’s wheel and it becomes a jug, a bowl, a cup. Seeing a vessel rise from a lump of clay or a drawing appear from the end of a pencil or music come pouring out of a wooden instrument is a magical thing, it captures the essence of transformation and connection, it takes us out of our solitary lives and connects us to others. I see “Marine Ostinato” as a distillation of this wonder, taking the private, moments of artistic creation and sharing them through performance and music. Marine Ostinato is designed to delight and inspire reminding us all of the wonders of the world we live in.”
All the money raised goes directly to the 4 artists involved to help pay for rehearsal, accomodation, and expenses but most importantly their inspiration and original, crazy, creative work in making this project happen.
“Marine Ostinato” is not just a performance. The project includes a beautiful film of the premiere in Hobart and we want everyone who donates to become part of this project by being able to see and share “Marine Ostinato”. Every patron will receive a downloadable link to the film of the premiere performance of “Marine Ostinato” at the Australian Ceramics Triennale in Hobart.
