Craft Victoria and Aesop are pleased to preset Jennifer Conroy Smith.
Jennifer is an artist specialising in sculptural porcelain, predominantly creating site specific installations and wall pieces.
Suspended sculptures consist of multiple hand formed pieces of porcelain, with most encompassing several hundred to thousands of individual pieces.
Hand formed paper-thin porcelain is created, exploring folds, creases, and crevices, which once clustered together create larger sculptural forms and interior landscapes.
By working the porcelain into paper-thin forms, Jennifer explores the dichotomy of the porcelain's strength with its delicate aesthetic.
Drawn to porcelain for its purity of colour and its ability to transmit light when worked in thin layers, the porcelain is predominantly left unglazed, allowing delicate light to pass through, creating a myriad of tones and casting beguiling shadows onto its surrounding environment.
