BEYOND SHORT STREET A Memoir by Owen Rye
Stories from the life journey of one of Australia’s leading artists in ceramics, beginning in a small isolated town in the Snowy Mountains. At university an unexpected inspiration leads to a PhD, followed by travel and adventure; from driving trucks, and flying gliders, to the Smithsonian in Washington, onwards to the deserts and high mountains of Pakistan and immersion in politics, archaeology, and assassination in Israel.
The emotional ups and downs of teaching in art schools, insights into the practice of the art of ceramics, and the subtleties of isolated rural living complete the storytelling.
