I've had a request for more information about Fiona Hiscock. She is an Australian ceramicist based in Victoria and her oversized, handbuilt forms reference colonial domestic ware. Fiona recently did an exhibition based on the remenants of old country gardens around Hill End. Each settler planted a plum, a fig, a quince, and a pear tree in their garden, hardy fruit bearing species. That carried echoes of home and would survive the harsh Australian climate.
