Things of stone and clay

Stone and Clay is an exhibition by local sculptor David Shaw that opens at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery this Saturday, October 3, at 2pm.

David works in Mt Gambier limestone and in clay. He says his work is a perpetual quest for harmony in form and line.

David chooses to work in Mt Gambier limestone for a number of reasons - it is Australian, derived from the sedimentation of ancient seas from five million years ago, and he loves the colour, which varies from almost white to deep cream. The stone often exposes fossils, shells, strata marks and varying colouration due to mineral deposits.

Since moving to the Northern Rivers in 2007 David has also discovered the pleasure of working with clay.

Stone and Clay runs till October 25.

Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday from 10am to 4pm.
