Studio 28

Jessie Yvette Journoud-Ryan - Sculpture with Crockery

Jessie Yvette Journoud-Ryan’s sculptural use of repurposed ceramics and vintage crockery draws from a decade of Fine Arts training in Melbourne and an education at a National Ceramics School in France. Inspired by her natural surroundings in the Hills, Jessie creates bird sculptures using ceramics, antique ware, op shop treasures and crockery donated by the local community.

Visitors will complete a circuit of spaces and will have access to multiple artwork displays, including feature mosaic walls, floors and access to the garden with views of Port Phillip Bay. The large working studio space will reflect the creative process and visitors will be able to observe a piece in the making over the duration of the weekend.

Parking Instructions: On street parking.

From the Artist

Jessie's work reflects her love of birds and her personal narratives of belonging, place, nature, and cultural heritage. Upcycling as a creative process is a comment on the excess inundating our domestic spaces and what this means for the environment. A central idea: There is poetry in the process of creating something new out of something that is broken.
