Handmade in Cygnet - Open Studio Art Trail


Bronwyn Clarke

Bronwyn Clarke Ceramics

Studio Potter, Bronwyn Clarke has established her most recent studio in Deep Bay Tasmania. Her love of sailing attracted her to the Huon Valley which in turn has reawakened her passion for making pots.

With origins in Art Teaching, following studies at the National Art School Sydney, Bronwyn became a Professional Potter/Educator spanning two decades commencing in the mid 1970’s with studios in Glenbrook and Duffy’s Forest. She built Murramarang Pottery at Bawley Point NSW in 1985. 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 in light reduction. Inspired by the colours of the Tasmanian landscape these glazes often evoke imagery of trees, rivers, Deep Bay sunsets and mountains.

This year’s winter studio stay at Gaya Ceramic Arts Centre in Sayan, Ubud, Bali, saw Bronwyn working with porcelain investigating surface decoration and once again the fascinating tactile qualities of satin matte glazes. Look out for these special pieces which will be available during Handmade in Cygnet, 2019.

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 am – 4 pm on Weekends through to June reopening in September.
