Biography

Claybia Ceramics (Molly O'Shaughnessy and Cassandra Chilton)

Claybia is a ceramic collaboration between Cassandra Chilton and Molly O’Shaughnessy, both members of the Hotham Street Ladies art collective. Their practice is centred around non-traditional sculpture, drawing on their sinister ceramic history. Claybia make ceramic art installations that explore the darker sides of art and life, humour, feminism, the everyday, the misshapen, the peculiar. They share a dislike of predictable ceramic art, and are attempting to “change this one ceramic ciggie butt at a time.” Their motto is Dark Ceramics for Dark Times.
