Vonney Ball : Ceramics
Description: Ceramic artist Vonney Ball's elegant output reflects a sound education in English ceramics design, a singularity of purpose and a drive to keep making work. Twenty years on from her arrival in New Zealand, her work connects cultural experiences from opposite ends of the earth. Vonney Ball: Ceramics surveys her work and examines her influences, from Bloomsbury to Maori art and design.
