New - WhatsOn

A new feature on our website is the "WhatsOn" listing. On this page members contributing to ceramicsonline can list up and coming events which they hope you will be able to attend. In some cases there may be a website which you can go to to see what they are doing. Click the "WhatsOn" link in the top menu bar to see what is happening in our members' world.

How to purchase a work

In the right-hand panel you will find a current list of our members all of whom have work for sale. Just click on an image of the work to see the pieces available for sale from that potter. You can purchase any of these works on-line using your credit card via Paypal. If you intend picking the work up from the artist then the cost will be less than if the work is packed and shipped to you. You can choose a "Pickup" or "Couriered" option from a drop-down menu.

Featured artists this week is - Erika Aupperle.

 

Erika Aupperle
I have been working with clay for many years.

I have a diploma in Art, specializing in Ceramics, from the Australian National University in Canberra.

I submit work to exhibitions and have picked up a few awards on the way. I have also given workshops and done teaching.

I mostly make tableware - things which have some practical function; hopefully being used and enjoyed every day.

I like glazes and what happens during firing, how they change. With most of the glazes I use there is always a certain amount of unpredictability involved, which can be exciting and frustrating.

I fire to stoneware temperature, 1260-1280 centigrade in an electric kiln. The pots are safe to use in the oven, (put them on a wooden board when they are hot) and they are microwave proof. You can put them in the dishwasher if you want.

Over the last few years I have been lucky enough to travel to China, Jingdezhen, the porcelain Mecca and enjoy residencies there which added a new dimension to my practice.

This site started out as an effort to provide ceramic artists in Christchurch, New Zealand with an outlet for their work after the devastating earthquake that essentially destroyed the business district, and much of urban Christchurch in 2010. After suffering the loss of their physical outlets in the earthquakes some of these studio artists formed the Cracked Pots Society and launched this website which gives the public a chance to again see and buy their work.

Since that time ceramic artists have found new ways to display and sell their work. In 2015 NZ Potters took over the site and offerred it as a free service to members in New Zealand.

ceramicsonline.co.nz has now been handed over to Lawrence Ewing who hopes to further develop the site and offer it to all potters and ceramic artists in New Zealand.
