Ceramics studios open to the public

Three ceramics studios in the Gosford LGA will open to the public over the weekend of August 16 and 17 as part of the Australian Ceramics Open Studios weekend.

Over 130 ceramics studios around the nation have registered for the open studios weekend with free entry to all studios involved. Aleida Pullar’s studio, located at Studio Latitude 33 in Avoca has registered for the event along with the Central Coast Potters Society in East Gosford and Ashley Fiona Studio in Woy Woy.

The Australian Ceramics Association president Ms Shannon Garson said the Australian Ceramic Open Studios is an event that shines a spotlight on ceramics and Australian artists whose primary medium is clay.

“The open studios weekend is an important event for both clay workers and the community,” said Ms Garson. “It’s an event that fosters the development, appreciation and recognition of potters and pottery throughout Australia. “Using handmade tableware unique to your region is a delight that many people do not experience in our global and industrialised world,” said Ms Garson.
