“I hand build each piece working with both stoneware and earthenware clay bodies. My works are a narration of personalities either viewed through the individual form or as a collective.
I always create to music and am passionate about my pieces embodied with a sense of movement and calmness within each character. Using sgraffito as my mark-making technique, this meditative process gives me a lot of happiness – creating a sense of movement on the cows and patterns on my figures. My anthropomorphic figures hold various collections from the landscape and are intended to be interchangeable, enabling the collector to connect and interact with the piece and have your own conversation by using your treasured finds over the years to come”.
Fliss Dodd is a sculptor based on the South Coast, New South Wales.
Studying ceramics at Australian National University (ANU) School of Art provided her with the technical skills required to understand & explore the scope of her craft and materials, but it has been her life experiences that has most shaped her practice. Extensive travel, time spent abroad and an immersion in cultures has given her the reference point from which her unique and distinctive style has emerged.
Her first (sold out) exhibition was at Michael Reid ‘Clay’ in 2021, and her work is held in private collections in both Australia and overseas.
