Jillian McCrae is a ceramicist based in Kingscliff, in the Northern Rivers of NSW. Under the name Between The Hills, she works primarily with Ceramics, often combining this with Floral design, Painting and Drawing. Jillian graduated from The College Of Fine Arts in 2012 with a studio major in painting and drawing. In 2018 after relocating to the Northern Rivers, she began experimenting with ceramic mediums and became absorbed in the instinctive, spontaneous nature of clay. Jillian’s ceramic works are shaped by hand using techniques such as coil and slab rolling. Through the careful, slow processes of hand building each piece develops its own character that embrace flaws and imperfections. Working as a florist, Jillian’s work is often made with flowers and plants in mind. Her recent work explores her tenancy toward vases and vessels, creating pieces that are functional and unique.
