Geoffrey Palmer is a Hong Kong-based ceramic artist. Originally from New Zealand, where he graduated with degrees in both mathematics and finance, Geoffrey moved to Hong Kong and worked as a finance professional before pursuing his interest in art and graduating with a BA (Fine Art) from RMIT University, Melbourne. The influence of nature and his mathematical bent are both clearly evident in his artwork.
"I am particularly interested in the ways that energy flows around and transforms our environment, both naturally and as a reaction to human intervention. My recent work investigates these by considering the relationship between the potter and nature, specifically with regards to the physical and thermochemical energy transformations that are occurring in the making process."
