Cameron Williams is known for his ability to produce big volumes of large scale work. This ability has kept him busy with an endless list of Commissions for high end commercial and private clients.
Cameron Williams Pottery has been running for over 30 years. His first major commission was to create over 200 large scale architecturally specific ceramics for the New Parliament House in Canberra. This set the theme for the majority of Cameron’s work.
Within this constant demand for his time, Cameron has been able to make himself available to teach others his techniques and tips for managing large amounts of clay. He is a part-time lecturer at the National Art School and his workshops are in great demand, particularly those with a focus on innovative wheel-throwing techniques developed by him over three decades.
Once you have learnt and mastered his technique, you will be amazed how easily you can handle both small and large amounts of clay efficiently and without too much effort. His techniques will change the way you approach clay and throwing.
Cameron has also become known for his hand made ovens which are used to cook food at the weekly markets and cater for parties often up to 250 at a time. Cameron believes that the popularity of his ovens is part of a renewed enthusiasm for handmade work which compliments the slow food movement and the desire for a more sustainable future.
His work is also in high demand for large scale architecturally specific items. His numerous commissions include one-off design pieces and large contracts including more than 200 wheel-thrown terracotta planters and vessels for Parliament House in Canberra, crystalline vases for the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, hand-thrown planters for the Kooyong Tennis Club in Melbourne, regular Westfield shopping centre commissions and numerous projects for landscaping companies.
Cameron's latest creation is the ‘Yard Oven’. This unique ‘hybrid’ backyard oven allows the user to cook using a tandoori oven, a tagine, a curry pot and also a small wood fired pizza oven.
