Ceramics, Wood and Stainless Steel Sculptor

Suvira is essentially a landscape artist, working across a variety of media that enable him a diverse and rich expression. Much of his work is ceramic and the relationship of ceramics with landscape is not only visual and thematic but also one of materiality. Working outdoors and in the public domain often requires the robust materials he so often adopts; as well as new stainless steel pieces he employs old fence posts, discarded metal objects, rusty machinery: the detritus of times past. Embedded in these found materials are histories forgotten, remembered and reimagined into visual narratives.

Suvira has produced a broad range of ceramics including tableware for 25 years and within that time also diversified into sculpture. He studied at Lismore TAFE and Southern Cross University, attaining his Masters Degree in 2000. He has a long exhibition history including as a curator. His work is in collections worldwide and has produced work for public places at various sites in Byron and surrounding shires. He has tutored classes at the Byron Community College since mid 1990’s.
