Blue's recent work has been inspired by the ocean, from childhood memories in East Africa, swimming in deep rock pools, abundant with sea life, to, later in life, snorkelling adventures inAustralia and overseas.
Her sculptural marine inspired vessels, are hand built and textured, utilizing a variety of clays, firing temperatures and glazes. That give the viewer a sense of the ocean and what lies beneath it and pass on her belief that we all need to protect this fragile environment and the many species that inhabit our oceans.
In 2011 Blue completed a Diploma in Ceramics at Northern Beaches TAFE. With their amazing facilities she has been able to experiment with a variety of clays, firings and has developed some unique glazes. In March 2012 she won the Pittwater Ceramist award.
