Leigh Fish

Hometown: Sunshine Coast

Based in: Queensland

 

I am a self taught ceramic artist based in Queensland Australia. I went to architecture school and graduated with a Masters degree before working as an Interior Designer. After taking time off to raise kids I participated in ceramic classes as an avocation. My artwork is characterized by an abstract and romantic expression, often focused on the tropical Australian landscape as subject matter. My process is both considered and playful with a strong focus on light, tectonic form and a sense of touch.

About Leigh Fish


IconInspires

What inspires you?

I get inspired by my surrounding context which is coastal Queensland. Every place has its own distinctive language that I like to try and capture in an abstract way.


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

Formwork is a critical part of my process and this is where I get most creative. I look for structural poetry everywhere I go whether it's a piece of coral, architecture or an interesting tree. Once I have that figured out, I try be as playful as possible without loosing too much focus. It's about finding the right balance between order and chaos and this is the part I leave to perception.
