This soulful city is filled to the brim and is overflowing with artistic talent!

The city's dedication to the Arts within the community is overtly displayed in many ways.

Local Fremantle Artists
Danica Wichtermann, Ceramic Artist
Since starting to work with clay in 2006, making forms on the wheel has become my passion. I enjoy testing the boundaries of thrown vessels and exploring the limits of clay, carving into my work to see how I can transform it into something sculptural and unique. I am inspired by nature; things that usually go unseen or unnoticed. I examine plant life: patterns and shapes on bark, shades of colours on flowers, skeletal veins on leaves, growing seedlings unfurling and seeking light. I like to deconstruct things I see and recreate them in my own way. Each piece is an individual expression of nature; of self. The intent is not to replicate objects, but to simply translate something seen, or experienced in a unique and interesting way. My works are to be explored, to draw you into their own internal worlds, to be discovered and unveiled.
