Gillian Hodes

Gillian was born in Zvishavane, a small rural town in Zimbabwe. She grew up immersed in the African bush, surrounded by Shona sculpture and African art. Fascinated by the contrasts of clay – ephemeral and permanent, transparent and opaque, rough and smooth – Gillian discovered porcelain to be the perfect medium to explore these counterparts. Indulging in porcelain’s raw malleable form and fragility after firing, Gillian’s ceramic sculptures portray the fluctuation of nature, the parting of clouds or the erosion of the wind on a mountain top.
