Deanna Roberts – Artist Statement

After my first trip to Jingdezhen as an artist in residence in 2015 it struck me that there was such a distinct contrast between the old and the new in Chinese art, architecture and design. I have always been attracted to Asian design, the origins of which began as a child living on Nauru and who revelled in shopping at Chinatown for seed beads to make jewellery. It became obvious to me during my more recent travels that my early shopaholic days were going to be a major influence in my work and a style I simply had to pursue.

With such admiration and respect for the works of the ancient artisans, I felt it necessary to highlight the importance of preservation of their designs by incorporating my interpretations into my work. Art is a constant exploration of ideas and creativity and to have the opportunity to do exactly that and also pass it on through teaching others is a great privilege and a great joy.

Working with clay gives me great pleasure and it is my intention to demonstrate that anyone can share in this appreciation simply by taking home a piece of history, or at least my representation of it.
