Since 1982, Rolf Bartz his exhibited his work throughout Australia and overseas. His fine porcelain is represented in private and public collections in Australia, North America, Europe and Japan.
My current work is all hand-carved porcelain, for retail and exhibition purposes. The work explores the architecture and fragility of seashells.
My work consists of individually thrown, hand-carved porcelain. The designs are carved into the pieces, using a variety of tools and scraped back as thin as possible to achieve maximum translucency, and to highlight the delicate nature of the form. Many of the pieces are left unglazed with just a highlight of underglaze colour.
