Ceramic Range

Bottle
The typical bottle ceramic Robin's usually creates possesses a wide-rimmed top, as seen by the cutout on the right. These ceramics are typiclly made out of stoneware but completely vary by design, colour and texture. Every case proves a diverse product of Robin's output. Each bottle is predominantly finished with a vareity of low-fired glazes.
 
For this piece, a mixture of low-fired dusky red, orange and beige glazes provide an almost metallic rusty aesthetic, which is completed by additions of enamles for texture. 
 
Average Dimension: 20cm x 10cm  
  
 
Oval Bottle
Toward the left is an example of the oval bottle-shaped ceramic that is again, typically, made out of stoneware. Although fundamentally diverse, Robin's oval bottles possess different designs and styles on its opposing faces. Yet, it is quite the contrary in other works. Collectively, these pieces undergo a similar process of multple firings whilst Robin will add various enamels, washes and glazes to achieve his desired affect until satisfied with the result.
 
For this piece, a white enamel paint has been implemented to provide a glossy top half finish whilst the etched grey and yellow quadiliteral forms, located at its center, embody the multi-levelled techiques involved in its production; etching, drawing and painting.
 
Average Dimension: 25cm x 15cm
Bowl
On the right is an example of the shallow shape Robin adopts for his thrown ceramic bowls. Although these ceramics vary in size and shape, sometimes with a footed base, they are all again primarily made out of stoneware and on occason, porcelian. Each hand-crafted ceramic, however, is decorated individually with a number of glazes giving a unique, authentic finish to each hand-crafted bowl.
 
For this piece, a porcelian wash has been used with a matt white glaze decorated with hints of dark carmine red, grey-black and subtle shades of brown-bronze.
 
Average Dimension: 10cm x 10cm 
Tea Bowl
The tea bowl over to the left is again made out of stoneware. In terms of form, this is the most conventional ceramic throughout Robin's body of works. The variety of multi-coloured glazes and enamels employed for each hand-crafted ceramic are quinessentially individual to each bowl.  ​​

For this piece,  a matte white underglaze has been applied amongst murky reds, blues and bright orange glazes, not to forget the shiny black luster rim. The enamles also provide its siginificantly shiny asethetic.
 
Average Dimension 15cm x 10cm.   
Vase
This stoneware vase shows the usual aesthetic shape of Robin's vases, despite his oval vases, shown directly below. As one of the larger range of ceramics he makes, typically using a heavy grog clay, these vases act as great decorative centerpieces due to their larger dimensions and lavish designs. See the studio gallery and shop for more pieces. Robin has also produced a number of vessels that extend past even the large dimensions of these vases. See our Instagram profile and page for pictures.  

For this piece, a porcelain wash has been implemented with a range of bold blue, light red-orange and black glazes amongst strips of low-fired gold luster.
 
Average Dimension: 40cm x 25cm
Oval Vase
The oval vase, depicted on the left, is also made of out stoneware and exemplifies the general shape of Robin's oval vases. These vases are usually smaller in comparison to the conventional vases we offer, yet the nature of Robin's style extends to much larger sizes on occassion; please see the online shop and latest news for the newest and latest pieces. 

These hand-crafted ceramics are decorated with a similar multiplicity of lusters, underglazes and washes. For this piece, a red underglaze has been combined with black and gold lusters giving a rich, certain elaborate impression. 
 
Average Dimension: 25cm x 15cm  
Slab Pot
The handcrafted slab pot, on the right, is one of the most authentic shapes entailed throughout Robin's collection. These ceramics are both slab built and possess varied faces each side, which either matches or varies in style, giving originality to each piece. Others, however, differ aesthically with inversed semi-circular lids and completely by palette and texture alike the one-off nature of Robin's body of works. See Robin's facebook and instagram profiles for more pictures, info and news. 


For this piece, a series of red, orange and yellow glazes have been brushed on for a 'roughed up' finish. The upper half of the slab pot also resembles the spontaneous yet expressionist style that represents the styles of Robin's oeuvre.   
 
Average Dimension: 25cm x 15cm
Paintings
On the left is one of Robin's ceramic paintings. These paintings usually include materials like clay or sand as well as the typical paint-on-canvas medium. Often, Robin's inspiration from Australia, observing the outback and other landscapes, manifests in his work by tone and texture as he openly admits with this painting. More one-off paintings are available to view and inquire about in our private collection.​

For this piece, an adhesive has been combined with sand and stone to create a immensely textured surface. Bold red, rusty gold-yellow and jet-black paints are apllied here.
