Read our interview with Louise to learn more about her art practice.

Louise Kyriakou is a Melbourne based artist whose current practice concentrates on the creation of contemporary ceramic forms using the traditional techniques of low relief sculpting and sgraffito decoration.

Originally an artist/illustrator accustomed to creating two-dimensional works, it wasn't until 2014 that Louise began experimenting with ceramics while teaching visual arts to secondary school students in East Gippsland. As she began exploring surface decoration techniques she could use for lessons with her students, Louise began creating faces on small clay plates with tribal inspired markings, and sunny expressions. The community of ceramic faces has continued to grow in number and style, and they now grace the walls of homes both in Australia and Internationally. Louise now divides her time between her art practice and her education roles in Secondary Schools in Melbourne.
