Jeff Mincham is one of Australia’s most prominent and influential ceramic artists with a career spanning more than 30 years. His exceptional craft skills and extraordinary body of work saw him honoured as Object’s 2009 Living Treasure, with his subsequent national tour continuing. Mincham is an artist in his creative prime and his most recent work showcases the unique results of his passionate research and experimentation with surface textures and firing techniques. With a reputation for monumental vessels, Mincham draws on his connection with and passion for the South Australian countryside where he lives and works. The surfaces of his large elliptical forms reflect his direct experience with the patterns and colours of the landscape – the Coorong, Fleurieu Peninsula and Adelaide Hills.
