A Selection from our Member Gallery

Queensland has a long history of producing world-class potters and ceramic artists. That tradition lives on today with many of Australia’s most innovative clay-workers living and working in the Sunshine state.

There are strong centers of excellence in the border districts, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast, the central Brisbane areas and in the regional areas of the vast state of Queensland.

Many of the members of Ceramic Arts Queensland mount critically acclaimed exhibitions throughout Australia and internationally every year. The member gallery showcases the portfolios of some of our members.

Most of these artists have their own websites or galleries where their work can be purchased either online or in person at their studios or galleries.
