Nyssa Miller is a ceramicist currently living and working in Canberra. Most recently she has been experimenting with local clays from the Canberra environment. Nyssa uses these materials to discuss neo-colonial, neo-liberal Australian politics. Her work employs the use of iconic Australian animals, sometimes in half-human form. Carefully rendered relief scenes are set into her handmade tiles, architectural ceramic pieces and functional ceramic ware. Her recent experience living and working in Paris has inspired a love of the art nouveau movement, which is evident in her extravagant forms and use of the whiplash curve.
