Ocean pools
- Fairlie Kingston

Fairlie Kingston’s deep connection to the coastal environment resonates poignantly throughout her exhibition of recent works, Ocean Pools. A passionate observer of the natural world, Kingston’s distinctive work is alive, uplifting and highly evocative.

This exhibition includes a new series of three-dimensional pieces depicting the iconic ocean pools of Sydney. Fairlie has used a new technique to create the water in these pieces, by experimenting with a powdered glass glaze that, once fired, creates a translucent, cracked glasss effect.

Ocean Pools also features a beautiful series of ceramic reliefs depicting the stunning views looking out from the ferry around Sydney’s bays and inlets, as well as ceramic vases, and a recent series of exquisite, illuminated lamps made from hand painted ceramic and parchment shades.

Fairlie Kingston’s respect and understanding for both her medium and subject matter are palpable in each of her masterfully realised works. This enchanting series presents an inspired image of Australia’s unique natural environment and our profound connection to it.
