Artist's Profile
Ceramics is amazing. You take a lump of clay and push or squeeze and smoosh it in various ways, and out comes a work of art or perhaps a simple pot.

I've been creating ceramic art for about a year and enjoy it immensely. When I'm not actually smooshing clay, I am often thinking of what I might do next.

I most enjoy working on the wheel, but I also do some handbuilding. The glazing is the part that can fascinate or frustrate me. It seems I never know for sure what the final glazed product will look like.

Perhaps the glaze ran or flaked or didn't quite cover the area I intended. So frustrating. Or maybe two glazes mixed perfectly together to form a third, unexpected colour. As I say, fascinating.

You can contact me at oj5@clingman.net

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.
