King Island Potters 2013

King Island Potters

Pottery exhibits

on display at the Cultural Centre

22nd January - February 22nd,  2013

Through the 2011 and 2012 school terms 24 local residents enjoyed working with clay under the expert guidance of experienced potter, Stewart Hoyt. Supported by the King Island District High School and King Island Cultural Centre.  A pleasant surprise was finding glazes still on the island used by the Pottery Group from the 70's. Thanks to Joc Bowden and Eva and Martin Finzel the results are full of colour, energy and beauty. Stewart Hoyt returned to the island on 20th January to set up a Raku Kiln with some of the potters and the results are just delightful and sparkling with colour and craftsmanship. A show not to be missed.
