Collection: Bruce McWhinney
With over 40 years experience as a maker and teacher and working overseas for the past seven years Bruce has returned to Sydney and set-up a studio in Bardwell Valley. His high fired colourful stoneware glazed with satin matt and edged with fluid glaze produce interest and movement. Bruce also makes one off sculptural and decorative objects employing ash glaze.
Nature and travel have been the main inspiration for his work – be it wood fired ceramics, sculpture, paintings or drawings.
Frequent trips to Japan including as the director and leader for Arts Of Japan Tours have had a profound influence on Bruce's approach to his ceramics, art and life.
Bruce maintains a studio in Sydney and Ubud Bali and exhibits work through galleries in Australia.
His work is in private and public collections including; Shepparton Art Museum, Campbelltown Art Gallery, Manly Art Gallery Museum, and the collection of the curator of the Smithsonian Museum in Washington USA, private collections.
Residencies also offer periods of intense experimentation and research such as undertaken in England, Japan and Denmark.
