Stay tuned- In person workshop here on Tamborine Mountain.
In the fold is my latest workshop which presents a playful approach to exploiting commercial and wild clay bodies. With emphasis on creativity and experimentation, we will test a range of locally sourced and commercially mined minerals, rocks, pigments and clays and discover how these can add wonderful new textures and effects to your ceramic ware. Along with building a collection of test pieces, we will explore the surface on a hand built vessel by using wild clay slips, oxides, terra sigillata and burnishing.
I pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging, recognising connections to Wangerriburra Country, history, culture and spirituality through this location. As an artist, I strive to ensure I walk softly on this earth and that my practice works in a manner that respects and honours the Elders and Ancestors of these lands.

All over Instagram potters are getting their hands dirty in ‘wild clay’, the DIY-trend for gathering your own. But before you pull on gumboots and pick up a shovel – what are the ethics of digging up your own clay? Artists Larissa Warren and Violet Bond speak to producer Rosa Ellen alongside Indigenous archaeologist Dave Johnston and Journal of Australian Ceramics editor Vicki Grima to unpack (and wedge!) the subject of gathering clay.
