Biographical Info

I have been a practicing professional craft person for more than 30 years, originally studying a Diploma Visual Art at the Canberra School of Art in 1982.

A wood fire specialist with professional studio facilities including 2 large wood kilns, an anagama and trolley kiln that I have built and fired over 40 times for firings of 70-120 hours duration up to temperatures of 1320`C. I specialise in exhibition and functional wares that are inspired by traditional Korean and Japanese wares. My pottery is hand crafted with the unique markings that wood firing provides.

I enjoy working in my natural environment and utilising what it can provide.

In the Bega Valley, I have access to a wealth of raw materials such as clay and glaze materials, black wattle wood ash, feldspar and pyrophelite. I use a combination of clay, stone, wood, fire and ash to enrich and decorate my thrown forms. I guess the appeal is in the endless variations of the natural ash glazes that capture the essence of the clay body and the firing process.

Bandicoot Pottery has been establised since 1990 and is situated about 5 kms east of Cobargo on the Bermagui Road.

Biographical Info

The technique of weaving has been passed along generations, re-discovered, and expanded upon throughout the years. Basket making is one of the oldest known crafts. Gabrielle Powell has been making baskets since 2005 whilst formally trained in ceramics at Canberra School of Art in 1985.

Powell is passionate about up-cycling, reusing and recycling. She is an active scavenger, bringing things home from the tip, holidays or collecting useful treasures to incorporate into her next basket. She enjoys the challenge of making baskets from unconventional materials such as tubing, cabling, plastic, wire – items that would normally be discarded. Recycled materials of lesser quality are up-cycled to create new innovative baskets – if it’s flexible; it can be woven! Powell’s works are colourful and sturdy.
