Studio 63: Ebony Russell and Alexandra Standen
Ebony Russell and Alexandra Standen are resident artists at Sydney’s Kil.n.it Experimental Ceramic Studio.
As neighbours and friends, they have been pursuing an opportunity to work on a collaborative project since early 2020. The Australian Design Centre’s Object Space exhibition provided them with the chance to nurture their burgeoning ideas – to combine art and design in a ceramics project that sits outside of their respective art practices.
Initially responding to their shared love of vintage Australian lusterware the project focuses on a series of ceramic sconces and lamps, incorporating differing effects of light and shadow throughout the day and night.
