“This August hundreds of potters and ceramic artists around the country will open their studios to the public for the third annual Australian Ceramics Open Studios. The event is hosted by The Australian Ceramics Association and shines a spotlight on the diverse practice of Australian artists working today in clay.
According to Shannon Garson, President of The Australian Ceramics Association, the event is an inspiring opportunity for members of the community to step inside the creative spaces of contemporary potters and ceramicists who continue to develop their unique voice within this ancient practice.
‘We have a strong ceramics community in Australia and presently we’re enjoying the growing appetite the community has for unique handmade objects. There has been a shift in thinking where people want to know how ceramic objects are made and who makes them.’
‘It’s an exciting time for clay workers to have such receptive audiences and the open studios event is a chance for the community to get to know their local potters and for potters to share their rich knowledge and skills,’ Shannon said.”
