Window Walk | Pauline Delaney & Roze Elizabeth (River Studios) X Dirty Dozen
Pauline Delaney and Roze Elizabeth are two established artisans of their craft. Both have been working with Glass and Screen Printing, respectively, for over 40 years each to produce custom made and limited series artisan products. They are both dedicated teachers, with years of teaching practice for Institutions and for small, tailored workshop groups.
In this installation, these two artists from River Studios bring together pieces that focus on a cross-over between their individual areas of interest and a common pursuit of colour, form and light.
Pauline has always embraced the colour available in glass to enhance her work, whether blown pieces or her current practice of flame work to create unique jewellery and original glass beads.
Roze leans to the classical periods of history for the creation of textiles and wood products that enliven the home environment. Her love of Italy is evident in the recent focus of exhibition work and works on bamboo.
Roze Elizabeth is an industrial trained screen printer: “I have printed for over 40 years. I print commissions, commercial homewares products, art pieces, and run workshops in my studio.
I have taught in a variety of secondary schools and RMIT. My focus is printing for textile and wood surfaces.”
Pauline Delaney loves working with hot glass: “it is fluid and alive. I have worked in glass 40 years from glassblowing to lampwork glass. Currently working in glass jewellery I accept commissions and run workshops from my studio at River Studios in West Melbourne.”
Both artists are currently in residence at River Studios; a warehouse in West Melbourne, managed by Creative Spaces.
This contemporary craft installation is hosted by Creative Spaces at the Dirty Dozen:
The Dirty Dozen in Campbell Arcade is one of Melbourne’s most intriguing exhibition spaces, located in an underground commuter walkway that runs from Flinders Street Station to Degraves Street.
