About the teacher

Alex’s interest in medieval history is reflected in the forms and decorative techniques that he employs in his work. He uses sgraffito to decorate forms based on Byzantine pottery, although he uses stoneware clays for their strength, a result of working in Canada for a year. The other main technique that he uses is salt-firing where a glaze is formed by adding salt to a kiln at high (stoneware) temperatures. His liking for fantasy creatures is also reflected in the dragons and gargoyles that frequently form decorative or design elements of his work.

About the teacher

Anna is a ceramic sculptor whose focus lies in the creation of anthropomorphic creatures that blur the boundaries of human, animal and machine. Her contemporary sculptures embody human characteristics, each with their own personality. They are cartoon-like, comical and playful. In 2015 she graduated from the ANU with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Ceramics and in 2016 was awarded a residency with Canberra Potters and started working with us shortly after that.

His involvement with the Canberra Potters dates back to 2014 when he taught a special needs group of students from Belconnen Community Services.
