Velda Hunter

Velda’s tableware and decorative pieces embody generosity and indulgence. Her passion is to create extra special items for use when rejoicing the celebratory events and milestones of life, and for the everyday pleasures of eating and drinking. The white-on-white slip-trailed surfaces are highly decorative with free-form curlicues, arabesques, simple leaf designs and, at times, gold lustre; some pots are topped with cheeky hand-built creatures. She also hand builds, making simple, direct and immediate forms using the pot as an artist’s canvas with brightly coloured, multilayered glazes, incorporating images of native birds and animals.
