CRAIG SPENCER, The Potter
I am New Zealand born and a resident of Australia for over 20 years. I currently live in Currumbin on the Gold Coast.
Whilst my love of ceramics has been since a young boy, my introduction to working with clay has been very recent.
I am eternally grateful to have been taught and carefully guided by the exceptionally talented potter and dear friend, Jo Norton. Jo has shared an enormous amount of her time, exceptional skills and her wealth of knowledge and kindness. I am very blessed.
I have over 20 years of interior design experience working on residential projects in Australia and New Zealand and also in the furniture industry both in Australia and Singapore.
I have a great passion and skill for interior design and decoration, the importance of material use, colour, texture and the balance of those within our build environment.
I have now extended that skill and love of design to clay.
This direction enables me to explore the art of making, using my hands and applying that creativity to another medium. Clay has brought such an enormous amount happiness at the same time - always being inspired and sharing my gifts with others.
My journey in the world of ceramics has only just begun...
