About the teacher

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. Tony enjoys people and is passionate about the role of art to help enhance community and improve people’s lives.
