We are all rugged up on Tamborine Mountain, wood smoke fills the evening air but it’s been snug and cosy at the PJ Pottery Studio and my wonderful enthusiastic students have just finished term 2 classes. I am so proud of their progress and some magic pots have been created over the last 10 weeks. Check out these amazing works including some marvellous monsters from a children’s pottery workshop I conducted in April with Scenic Rim Regional Council
Don’t forget my WINTER SALE of handmade jewellery ends last day of June – HAPPY SHOPPING!
Back in the warmth of January I ran a ceramic jewellery workshop and revelled in watching my students get excited about their creations. So now we are in May and I have at last finished and photographed my own handmade porcelain earrings and handmade glass bead necklaces.
Some of these have been embellished with small porcelain trinkets making them pop. And to celebrate, all of these new pieces are on sale until the end of June. I hope you find one or two you like here.
thank you to all who bought my pottery; commissioned work; attended classes and gave me such encouraging feedback through 2020. Being able to work in ceramics is such a privilege and I love what I do. So, it gives me a thrill to let you know what I have planned for 2021.

VERY excited to be in the 2020 Australian Ceramics Open Studios Sat/Sun 21/22 November. My lovely studio will be (hopefully) clean and tidy and pots priced and displayed ready for sale. There will be the traditional sales table of seconds and old stock as well as fresh new work hot from the kiln. I’ll be offering discounts for my wonderful students and repeat customers so come along, talk clay, and bring some spending money #nearlyxmas
I will be giving throwing demonstrations all weekend so bring your children and friends to see how pottery is made on the wheel. See you next month!
the boots, scarves and jumpers are out and it’s a lovely time to visit Tamborine Mountain: be invigorated by the fresh mountain air and spoil yourself to a hot toddy at one of our excellent cafes and restaurants.
I’m thrilled to say the Iso Tea-Time of the Soul exhibition at Under The Greenwood Tree has been extended so there is one more week to see this show of steampunk inspired ceramics, you can ask Janene for a copy of the catalogue
92 Main Western Rd Tamborine Mt Qld
Opening hours: 10am – 4pm Mon, Wed, Fri, Sat & Sun. Closed Tuesdays & Thursdays
Nicci will be at the gallery from 11am – 3pm on Saturday 6th June. For those unable to visit in person – a virtual tour of the exhibition by Nicci will be viewable on FacebookInstagram and via the gallery newsletter.
what strange times we are in, hope you are all taking the time to do a bit of self healing, introspection and whole lot of creativity and catching up on all that domestic stuff we never usually get around to.
I am enjoying the guilty pleasure of being super focused on the clay and have created some pretty special steampunk teapots and tea-related items that will (hopefully) be in a solo exhibition on Tamborine Mountain late June at the delightful and intimate Under the Greenwood Tree Bookshop and Art Gallery…more info coming
