Pru Morrison’s ceramic art provokes an open-ended dialogue about everyday life in Australia.
Pru is a multidisciplinary artist who practices etching, painting and drawing – artistic expressions that all exert some influence over her ceramics. Her pieces are made by layering different coloured clay slips in the terra sigillata style before before scratching through the strata to create an image on the surface of the clay body.
Pru is the recipient of a Rockhampton Ergon Energy Award and Cairns William Graham Carmen Award.
