About the teacher

Alex de Vos is a long-time member and teacher at Canberra Potters. After completing an Associate Diploma in Visual Arts in Ceramics at the Canberra School of Art in 1987, he started as a children’s teacher with the Canberra Potters Society in 1988. He has held various positions within the society since then.
Alex has a strong interest in medieval history, which 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 ‘nontraditional’ 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

Erin Kocaj was first involved with Canberra Potters in her school years, taking classes during college with the aim of getting into art school. After graduating with Honours in Ceramics from the ANU School of Art in 2011, she joined the Canberra Potters teaching staff in 2016. During this time, she also initiated ‘Claybodies’- a group of local ceramic artists who support, showcase and celebrate ceramics in the community through discussion groups, exhibitions and workshops.
As an artist she likes to make highly patterned objects, both functional and non-functional. Her works are recognisable by their linear pattern and references to nature that she employs. The quality of the linear pattern can be organic or constructed; often she places the two alongside each other in a contrastive display of balance and tension.

About the teacher

Anna O’Neale 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.

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.
