"Dancing Avocado" by Yang Qiu from December 2023.

This delightful object is based on the shape of an avocado, lovingly rendered in gradated pale greens and pinks, then brought to life with multiple red shoe clad legs. And for extra whimsy, there's a brace of multi-coloured mushrooms and toadstools sprouting from one side.

width: 8cm
depth: 7.5cm
height: 12cm

Mid fired clay, underglaze, lustre.
Hand made in Australia.

Yang Qiu is a prolific interdisciplinary artist based in Sydney, Australia. 

Informed by her background as a pastry chef, her unique approach to ceramic creation, involves transforming local produce, such as corn, eggplants, and mandarins, into functional ceramic sculptures, all while exploring the shapes and surfaces of food in her paintings. 

She imbues her work with a sense of whimsy and childlike wonder, often characterising her creations with faces and legs, as though imbuing them with personalities and identities.
