About Gabby's ceramics:

I majored in ceramics at the Dunedin Art school, NZ in 1986.

As a Chinese adoptee raised by white parents, at that time all I wanted to do was be like everyone else. I flatly rejected Asian art while embracing the western art teachings of the time. I worked with colour on majolica glazes over terracotta, taking inspiration from Italian and Spanish ceramics.

For the next 35 years, I worked as a painter – working chiefly in liquid colours as a natural progression to glazes.

During COVID in 2020, I made a return to clay and this time I am embracing my heritage and have spent countless hours in museums and online, researching traditional Chinese shapes and motifs.

I currently work with white clays, with Chinese inspired designs painted freehand in Cobalt oxide. My forms are inspired by Chinese temple and altar vessels - adaptations of, rather than copies.
