Sue Peachey

Sue Peachey’s exploration of clay started with a foundational course at Canberra Potters Society. She became a member soon after and began steadily honing her skills, moving from beginner’s classes to more advanced, with experienced teachers Chris Harford, Cathy Franzi, Richilde Flavell, Rick Beviss and Suzanne Fox.  She has enjoyed acquiring a broad range of skills such as majolica, lids and galleys, sgraffito, terra sigillata, raku, glazing, throwing plates, firing the kiln, mould making, slip casting, and nerikomi.

She has shown her work in Canberra Potters’ Members’ Exhibitions and learnt from visiting ceramic artists John Tuckwell (2018), Srinia Chowdhury (2018) and Anne Mossman (2020). Sue’s current practice is exploring mid-fire coloured porcelain, nerikomi, and wagons with wheels.

She is also a published poet and permaculture landscape designer.

Maker Phoebe Breen works under the name Kindly - a clay project offering handmade functional pieces to warm the carefully crafted alcoves of your home. She aims for Kindly to be as socially and environmentally friendly as possible. Having studied ceramics in Northern NSW, Phoebe uses the medium of clay to create traditional pieces with contemporary design. Employing earthy colourways, patterns and finishes that mimic our natural environment, each Kindly piece is a humble nod to the clay’s origins and an ode to its new beginnings.

Trained as a sculptor, Tony is passionate about the role of art to help enhance community and improve people’s lives. 

Tony Steel has worked with clay since he was a child, loving the tactility and earthiness of the material. He graduated from the Australian National University with a Bachelor of Arts (Sculpture), Canberra School of Art (now ANU School of Art and Design) in 1995. His involvement with the Canberra Potters dates back to 2014 when he taught a special needs group of students from Belconnen Community Services. During these classes he championed the positive effect working with clay can have on those with disabilities. Tony has since been regularly engaged to teach during our popular school holiday program. 

Since graduating from the ANU, Tony has had numerous exhibitions and commissions. In the public domain he has collaborated on large ceramic sculptural and mosaic works with school children and community.
