Mick Guthrie is a Sydney based Irish Australian Artist who was born in Galway, Ireland. Mick is interested in clay sculpture and Photography. In 2018 he achieved a Master of Art in Photo media with Excellence. Great stories, that stand the test of time, are the inspiration for his clay sculptured works.
Mick is self-taught in ceramic sculpture. Drawing on his engineering background he has been able to discover for himself, an individual set of clay sculpting and firing rules, always enjoying the troubleshooting and creative process. This has allowed Michael to create beautiful and unique works. Many cultural influences, from all over the world, come into play in Mick’s work.
His work has been sold through the National Gallery of Australia (NGA), Canberra, where Michael and his wife Nicole developed a special range of merchandise for the NGA’s “Book of Kells” exhibition. In addition to private galleries, his works have sold through the National Museum of Australia, Canberra. In the past, Michael’s work has been exhibited at a number of shows and through a number of galleries, including the Mosman Community Art Gallery. He exhibited a video work and some photographic prints through Annandale Galleries in 2015.
