Presenter bio

Sachiko Mardon is a ceramic artist and educator. She discovered the medium of ceramics while studying Industrial Design at RMIT, and later completed a Master of Fine Arts (UTAS) with a focus on process-driven sculpture and installation. Using plaster moulds and handbuilding techniques, her practice involves de-constructing and re-imagining found forms, leaving traces of the process along the way.
