Shellie Christian

I’m a Central Coast sculptor ceramicist expressing my life and soul connection with the land through earth-inspired forms.

I use natural elements found in the local bushland and coastline to create ceramics that evoke the oneness of land, people and our environment. That is what matters most – the bonds we have with each other, entwined with our deep-rooted connection with nature.

You can find some surprising markings and finishes in my work, created by using materials like pods, sticks, seeds and wire. I intuitively use them to extend the still form and echo the movement and energy I see in nature, mirroring the rustic elegance of the Australian bush.

My evolution as a ceramic artist is a journey illustrated by creativity. I’ve always crafted with my hands, and in that very first meeting with clay, a soul connection was ignited.

Over the next five years, I studied, diploma and advanced diploma in Visual Arts, always sculpting, shaping and sharing my wonder at nature’s beauty in each piece I make.

I was a finalist in North Sydney Art Prize 2019 and Small Things Art Prize, St Cloche Gallery

My ceramics have been exhibited at:
Kerry Lowe Gallery – Newtown
Sculpture at Scenic World Exhibition – Blue Mountains
Packsaddle at New England Regional Art Museum
Artisans in the Gardens at the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney
