Buy your copy of Influential Queensland Woodfirers

A study of 14 of Queensland's most influential woodfirers - what they produced and how

Author: Dianne Peach

Publishers: Ceramic Arts Queensland & Brisbane Institute of Art

This seminal work looks at the influence that Queensland ceramic artists has had on the woodfirering movement in Australia and internationally by examining the work of 14 of our most respected woodfire practitioners.

Written by Dianne Peach, this was a companion book to the exhibition of these works which was curated for the Smoke on the Water 2017 Conference in Cooroy Queensland.  The collection of art ceramics from these renown artists was a rare event in itself as works were gathered from public and private collections throughout Australia. 

The book on the collection looks at the works themselves and also at the methods employed by these ceramic artists to produce the works.

The book is perfect bound and printed on high quality paper making it suitable for enthusiasts, collectors and archivists. 

Price including packing and postage (within Australia) is just $19.00.

Selections from our Member's 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 aclaimed exhibitions throughout Australia and internationally every year. We have gathered together the portfolios of many of these fine artists for you to browse their work.

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.
