Handmade in Cygnet - Open Studio Art Trail

Bronwyn Clarke Ceramics

Studio Potter, Bronwyn Clarke established her Deep Bay, Tasmanian studio in 2016. Her love of sailing attracted her to the Huon Valley however her passion for making pots has taken priority.

With origins in Art Teaching, following studies at the National Art School Sydney, Bronwyn became a Professional Potter/Educator spanning two decades. An unexpected career change in the mid 1990s led her away from clay into the world of Community Economic Development, where she took on the role of CEO for Mainstreet Style Projects and Community Leadership Boards. During this time, whilst her personal creative output was on hold, Bronwyn managed community cultural events including Art Markets, Festivals and Exhibitions.

Bronwyn's throwing is extremely skilled and distinctive. Her glazes are satin matt, fired to 1280 degrees and above in light reduction. Inspired by the colours of the Tasmanian landscape these glazes often evoke imagery of trees, rivers, Deep Bay sunsets and mountains.

Last year’s winter studio adventure at Gaya Ceramic Arts Centre in Ubud, Bali, saw Bronwyn joining a workshop with Master Potter, Akira Satake, a highly regarded Japanese Potter living in Asheville North Carolina. Once again Bronwyn worked with fascinating surface textures and the wonder of unglazed ash ridden wood and soda firings. Look out for these special pieces which will be available during Handmade in Cygnet 2020.

All Bronwyn Clarke Ceramics tableware is dishwasher safe, ovenproof and able to be used in the microwave. Her Deep Bay Studio is open on request however Bronwyn welcomes visitors between 10 – 4 on weekends September through to May.
