Art For The Everyday
Informed by the colours and textures of the Australian landscape, artist Kelly Murphy creates functional ceramic objects for the home under her label Benna co.
Plates and platters are uniquely glazed to appear as abstracted landscape paintings and aerial views of our great land. Planters and vases are built by hand, retaining every fingerprint and impression - voluptuous and shapely forms whose playful movement, frozen into stone, seem like artefacts from a volcanic eruption. Wallhangings consisting of repetitive circles and ellipses are woven with recycled and remnant yarns the colour of grasslands, evoking ancient symbolism and fertile ground.
Benna co pieces are art for the everyday.
