Lilach Mileikowski’s passion lies within the manipulation of the form, challenging the limitations of the medium and its fusion with diverse materials. She presents ideas of personal, cultural and historical significance, bringing the poetics of the past into the present to question the future. Migrating from Israel to Melbourne, in 1995, Lilach completed a Diploma of Arts Ceramics and established her ceramics studio. This was followed by an Advanced Diploma of Creative Product Development. In 2016 she completed a Master of Fine Art at RMIT University, her research focusing on the spiritual and political concerns of identity exploring the dual notions of fragility and strength. Lilach’s work is held in private collections in Australia, England, US and Israel. She has been selected for prestigious exhibitions in Australia and abroad, including The Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award, The Victorian Ceramic Art Award Manningham, The Muswellbrook Art Prize NSW and The International Ceramic Competition Mino Japan. Most recently she has been selected as a finalist for the 2021 Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize NSW, the 2022 Yering Station Sculpture Exhibition and Awards Victoria and the 2022 Lake Art Prize NSW.
