About the teacher
Erin graduated from the ANU School of Art Ceramics Department in 2011. As an artist she likes to make highly patterned objects, both functional and non-functional. Her works are recognisable by the linear pattern that she employs. The quality of the linear pattern can be organic or constructed; often she places the two alongside each other in contrast. The objects often flaunt an optical display of balance and tension.
Erin joined Canberra Potters teaching staff in 2016.
