Melbourne is a city with a rich and ever growing popular music culture. From the early 1960’s the music emanating from Melbourne has had a particular sound and quality. A lot of ‘dark’ or at least sad music is made here, maybe it’s the rain and cold.
There are some strong threads linking ‘the crafts’ and the writing of songs, particularly in a popular or folk idiom.
These ceramics will draw their forms and decoration from the deep well of Melbourne’s song writing culture: a kind of Wunderkammer dedicated to various Melbourne performers and songs, living and dead.
