I’m returning to pottery after 35 years (with a few dabbles in-between). I have been living and working overseas for many years and returned to Australia at the end of 2013. Over the years I have tried lots of other “hobbies” looking for something more convenient, less messy and much more portable – but nothing really seemed to suit. Finally I bought a bag of clay, pulled the wheel out of storage and threw some pots. The first thing I noticed was the smell of the clay – a wonderful scent that said “put your hands into me!” I am regaining my throwing skill and working with a potters wheel is magic! Feeling the clay respond to the pressure of your hands as it forms into a pot is amazing. After years of struggling to find something to relax with I am so glad to be in a situation where I can do pottery again.
The purpose of this website and online store is to make my work available to family and friends. This is a hobby and not a business so I won’t be able to meet business timetables or expectations. I don’t take orders but I’m happy to sell what I have made – to cover costs and make room for more things.
I’m based in the St George area of Sydney.
