Breathing Colours features a variety of contemporary ceramics in their Sydney gallery from a range of leading Australian ceramic artists.

There are different types of ceramics but generally they are all corrosion-resistant and hard, but brittle. They are able to withstand high temperatures and are good insulators, leading them to widespread use in modern society.

Some popular items made from ceramics include:

  •     bowls
  •     vases
  •     cups and saucers
  •     beakers
