Gus Clutterbuck embraces risk and experimentation to keep his work fresh and interesting, and constantly evolving. His work is inspired by direct immersion in place, experience, personal history and the potential of broken and discarded objects to tell stories about our culture. He works in Jingdezhen, China, on an annual basis, and is also based at the JamFactory in Adelaide.
Clutterbuck exhibits both nationally and internationally, most recently presenting work in the solo exhibition Shards at MEOU Art in Shanghai. His work is held in the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia, and in 2011 he was awarded a Special Prize for his work Plastic Geology (2011) in the Gyeonggi International Ceramix Biennale, Icheon, South Korea (2011). In 2014 he was the recipient of an Aisalink Residency, undertaking a self-initiated residency at the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China. He also has experience working in community arts and education, including with remote aboriginal communities in South Australia's APY lands and the East Kimberley region in WA.
