Angie Russi

Angie lives and works in North Central Victoria. Her studio is nestled in the garden of her home in the main street of Rushworth; a small historic goldmining town on the edge of the Rushworth Heathcote State Forest. Her professional practice as a studio artist spans forty years of making, exhibiting & sharing her practice. Angie graduated from RMIT Fine Arts Ceramics in 1981 and a Master in Community Cultural Development VCA 2006. Angie has maintained a studio practice while working in a community context , in schools and in Arts Management.  She is now happily back in her studio practice full time and is perhaps best known for her quirky spotted fowl series and Bird Women, many of which can be found in private homes, gardens and businesses. Angie’s larger site specific ceramic sculptures and murals can be found installed in public places in Central Victoria including regional school campuses. Angie’s works may be sculptural in nature combining textured & brushwork detail or 2 dimensional large scale tile works and a bespoke range of domestic ware. ‘Inspiration comes from my environment and a particular love for birds and the natural environment in which I live, all pieces are created using high fired stoneware or porcelain clay and I aim to share a delight in the colors, shapes, patterns, the character of the natural world and creatures with whom we share it. Angie’s works are constantly evolving and refreshing depending on her focus at the time – she does not like to be Pigeon holed and loves to respond to life intuitively though her practice. Angie’s work can be purchased at her studio in Rushworth and/or online or through gallery shops. Angie welcomes commissions and also wholesale enquiries.
