Bruce Nuske

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Bruce Nuske’s ceramic works are heavily influenced by the natural world, drawing inspiration from flower pressings, textile patterns and photographs. They reflect the artist’s close observation of plant and animal life, which is characteristically conveyed though patterns and perforations, inscribed across the surface of diverse ceramic vessels.
