Sharon is happy to deliver and assemble Let’s Dance in the Hunter Valley, Newcastle, Lake Macquarie areas. Further afield by arrangement.
Let’s Dance borrows shapes from succulents, natures living sculptures. The forms stand proud and ready for some fun.
The pieces are hand built from clay with impressed natural textures.

I am a ceramic artist and have been practicing and exhibiting in the Newcastle area for the last 9 years. I graduated from the University of Newcastle with a Bachelor of Fine Art, Honours, in 2010.
Most of my ceramic sculptures are inspired by my natural environment, the shapes, forms, colours and textures of the Australian landscape. I enjoy working with clay because of its versatility and the tactile processes of forming and making the works. I love to make pieces that can be put back into the landscape which has inspired them. Always looking at the plants and land formations around me, I strive to expose the hidden beauty.
