Description

Ceramics is my life: A fascination with earth and fire to transform it into stone, finding inspiration through the landscapes of the south coast.

Timeless values of form and technique are the basis for design and manufacturing principles in the handcrafting of over 100 different shapes.

The gallery has spectacular views of Scottsdale Valley, showcasing Art Series Vessels and Vases, Sculptural Art and extensive Tableware ranges by the very talented WA Ceramic designer.

The Studio

"My interest in clay started in 1972 at age 17. As a young artist, the isolation of this area enabled me to develop my own style.

The majesty and grandeur of the south coast landscape inspires a timelessness that I incorporate into the design process.

My work encompasses many ranges in contemporary shapes and colour combinations.

With so many trends and styles in food, versatility and function are of the utmost importance to me.

My inspiration and techniques are an eclectic combination of classic forms and structures from Europe and Asia, of which I find the latter more spontaneous and naive.

In addition to the 600 items of tableware, I craft a range of vases and ceramic artworks."

Other works were acquired by the shire on an ad-hoc basis until the establishment of the annual Shire of Plantagenet Art Acquisition in 1991.

The Shire of Plantagenet collection contains many important works by renowned 20th century, Australian and Western Australian artists that make it one of the most significant local government art collections in Western Australia.

  • Open Days:Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday,Public Holidays

Description

All our glass artwork is designed and created in our studio workshop, located above the gallery. We encourage our customers to visit the studio to see examples of the different glass-working techniques. If they desire, they are welcome to consult on, or design their own glass works to give that really personal touch to their home.

The process can as simple as acquiring ideas from our portfolios or books and modifying them to create your own design. Once the the concept and colour scheme is organized the piece is halfway to being made. For hot glass it is even possible to arrange the coloured glass yourself to get just the look that you desire - then we will work the glass for you. We are also happy for clients who want pieces made by other techniques to discuss their design ideas with us.

The perfect place to find a unique gift, our gallery displays a showcase of kiln formed glass art pieces. The designs and concepts used in our collections are our own, and each peice is hand-crafted, so every item is unique. We enjoy pushing the boundaries to see how far it is possible to stretch glass into different shapes. We continue to experiment to see how glass performs when melted, and to extend our abilities, resulting in a wide range of artefacts. These include bowls, platters, lamps, jewellery and other sculptural pieces.

It is also possible for you to design and commission art works incorporating your own ideas and desires - talk to us when you visit. The gallery is set up for lampworking, so when you visit it may be possible to watch while we work with the flame to make beads or small sculptures. Repairs and restoration. Open by appointment.

Description

He’s incapable of stinting on the time required to hand-make beautiful, elegant objects which buyers cherish for a life time and bequeath to the next generation as heirlooms or collector’s items.
 
For a number of years he has been creating exquisite timber and metal furniture pieces and sculptures in a Workshop on the farm where he’s lived for 10 years with his family.
 
In his woodcraft and black smith shop he works creating and designing pieces that are unique and mostly a one-of design not just another craft shop but as a place and space that visitors can feel and smell the elements of steel, wood, fire & water, his workshop is  located in apple packing shed built in the early 1900s ,and his creations now being displayed in a purpose built gallery with materials sourced from the refurbishment of the Mount Barker apple cool-stores built in 1918 ,now known as Corkescrew Gallery and Workshop.
 
George says the 100 year old shed “is a perfect complement to the works I exhibit made from W. A. timbers – new and recycled".
 
George's passion for wood starting out  as a carpenter and joiner at the age of 16 and the metal working skills came from his father in law, now 91, a career blacksmith all of his working life.
 
There are plenty of stories such as these to hear and wonders to observe when you visit the Corkescrew Gallery. You’re welcome to spend time enjoying the artworks at your leisure, or alternatively, watch  as George transforms wood and metal into collectible and also functional pieces of furniture and art.
