Peter Moore

Peter attended a children’s pottery class at St George Potters in the late 1970s.  The first time he used a potters wheel he feel in love with the feeling of the clay forming into a pot in his hands.  Working and living overseas meant that pottery was ignored for many years.  However at the beginning of 2016 Peter recognised his need for a hobby and rejoined St George Potters Group to be part of a community.  Peter enjoys making attractive functional wear that looks good and is pleasing to use – he still loves the magic of the wheel.  He also loves experimenting with glazes and the transformation that happens in firing.  He is currently working on developing a good range of cone 6 glazes for use in the studio.  Peter is learning to use Chinese brushwork designs as decoration.  You can see more of his work at www.petermoorepottery.com

Kimberly Cruz

My approach to ceramics is similar to that of any artist applying meaning to her art. Each piece is drawn from both wonderful and painful experiences past and present. I allow myself to become vulnerable in the process, exposing a multitude of memories, insecurities, confidence and hope. Through this, I strive to translate uniqueness, imperfection and honesty of heart into each of my pieces. Follow me on my little journey on https://www.instagram.com/thepotterxtheclay/ …

Vanessa Leung

My works are heavily influenced by the integral role of

pottery in Japanese culture. I formalised my addiction to clay with a Diploma of Ceramics from Sydney Tafe’s Sutherland College. Having only scratched the surface, I’m always inspired by others and learning about different works and techniques. I’m currently coming to terms with my unrequited love of porcelain, and keen to further develop my knowledge in making mid-fired 1200 degree ceramics and glazes. To see my journey with clay so far, please visit my blog at www.wabisabiwarabi.com or connect with me @wabisabiwarabi on Instagram.
