Natalie O’Loughlin (she/ her) is a multidisciplinary artist living and working on Gadigal Country/ Sydney, her work examines the potential of the ceramic container as a conduit for our thoughts and ideas.

Natalie’s work responds to memory, materiality and the paradox of failure, unravelling her past and the world around her. The practice of working with clay is one of unlearning, and accepting disappointment as a part of the process. Natalie’s vessels are an exercise in seeing defeat as potential and reconsidering the intrinsic value of the function.
