Bronwyn Clarke established her Pottery in Deep Bay, Tasmania in 2016.
Her love of sailing has brought her to the Huon Valley, Tasmania, however it was the seam of clay on which she lives that has reawakened her passion for making pots.
Formally trained as an Art Teacher, through the National Art School Sydney, Bronwyn became a Professional Potter/Educator spanning two decades commencing in the mid 1970’s.
She established her purpose built Murramarang Pottery at Bawley Point, South Coast NSW in 1985. Previous studios were in Glenbrook, Lower Blue Mountains and Duffy’s Forest Sydney.
A career change in the mid 1990s led Bronwyn away from clay into the the world of Specialist Community Projects, during which she managed Mainstreet Style Local Economic Development and Community Leadership Projects.
Bronwyn’s throwing is clean and refined. Her glazes are satin matt, muted, smooth to the touch and gas fired to 1280 degrees in slight reduction and oxidation.
She uses local Deep Bay clay blends providing a special point of difference to her pots. Her free form scratched decoration is a signature feature of current work as are her special glaze effects.
Bronwyn’s Deep Bay Studio is open on request and on weekends. Bronwyn suggests that if you are planning a weekend visit in advance it is best to call first on 0410 343 077 to check as Open Studio arrangements may alter. Announcements can be seen on Facebook Bronwyn Clarke Ceramics and Instagram @bronwynclarkeceramics.
