Craig Hoy – Near Life Experience

"There is something mesmerizing, maddening and enlightening about raku firing. I love its elemental contentedness, its exciting immediacy, its predictable unpredictability that taps into something ancient. I love the scars the pots bear testament to their experiences and survival."
Craig Hoy is a Cairns-based artist and potter. Over the past twenty years he has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows and his work is held in public and corporate collections. Exhibiting in Darwin for the first time as part of NCCA’s tropical city dialogue.
