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 has brought her to the Huon Valley which in turn has reawakened her passion for making pots.

Formally trained as a Secondary 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 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 which enabled others to move ahead in their chosen cultural disciplines.

Bronwyn's throwing is extremely skilled and distinctive. Her glazes are satin matt, fired to 1280 degrees or cone 10, in light reduction.  Inspired by the colours of the Tasmanian landscape these glazes often evoke imagery of trees, rivers, local sunsets and mountains.

Wood firing has always held a special place in Bronwyn’s ceramic world. In August 2017 she participated in an anagama firing at Gaya Ceramic Art Centre in Ubud, Bali with stunning results.  Some of these pieces will be available during Handmade in Cygnet, 2018.

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 the 3rd Sunday of each month through to June reopening in September.
