If your tastes aren't hemmed in by the Modernist trappings of much current ceramic work then venture into the strange world of Dave Ray. Dave isn't afraid to push things a little. He is Kandler on crack ! Perry on peyote! Slee on psilocybin!
He is currently plying his wares at Nellie Castan Gallery in Melbourne.
Whenever I am getting hung up on ideas about technique and such , I think of the 'rayster' and loosen up for a couple of minutes.
