Dawn Thirlaway

Dawn Thirlaway first studied Ceramics at TAFE in Sydney and then at Southern Cross University, Lismore. Dawn has exhibited at the Gold Coast Ceramics Awards, Planet, Lismore Regional Art Gallery and participated in many group exhibitions both regionally and interstate.

Dawn won the graduating student award at Fusion's Gallery in 2003 and was selected to exhibit at 'Verge" 11th National Ceramics Conference in Brisbane 2006. In 2009 she received third place in the Border Art Prize.

Dawn’s passion was “Neriage” - a unique Japanese process of laminating coloured clays and creating patterns which requires patience and attention to detail. She used the local landscape as inspiration for her small delicate bowls in translucent porcelain. Dawn's work also includes wheel-thrown pieces as well as home-wares in slip-cast porcelain.

Completing Visual Arts Honours at SCU in 2011, Dawn worked on a project that conveyed her experiences and recovery from cancer. In her work, Dawn drew upon her personal experience of cancer to facilitate "Healing with Clay" workshops for a variety of groups in the Lismore area, as well as teaching ceramics to people with disabilities.

Sadly, Dawn died in July, 2013. It may be a cliche, but a little piece of Dawn's serenity and wisdom lives on in her work - not to mention our individual and collective memories of her and her contribution to the arts community of Lismore.

Dawn's complete collection of works are viewable on the gallery's Collections pages - The Dawn Thirlaway Collection.
