Olivia Macassey Great Plate 2020

Glazed ceramic, 25 cm

The Quarry Arts Centre is running its yearly fundraiser again! My plate, ‘Will the Sea Remember Us?‘ is hand-glazed ceramic with an original, previously unpublished poem applied using caligraphy brush and glaze pencil (the plate itself was thrown by Mike Regan).
Despite the recent lockdown, there is still a lot of creative energy in the community and heaps of cool plates. You can view and bid on all the plates on Trademe here, or in real life at the Yvonne Rust Gallery, 21 Selwyn Ave, Whangarei (open 9.30am-4.30pm, Mon-Sat). The auction closes on Monday, July 20, at 5:30 pm.


We were
made from ocean,
from  mud,  clay,  air;      the
shadow of a lone bird,  flying
against the sun. We move now
toward an unknown horizon.

Will the sea remember us
when we are gone?
