Liz is a potter who produces a wide range of functional kitchenware including mugs, jugs, bowls, casseroles, teapots, platters, vases and even egg cups. She enjoys throwing pots on a wheel, as well as handbuilding, and fires her work in both gas and electric kilns while experimenting with different types of clays and glazes. Her special interest in botany and the natural world of The Blue Mountains inspires many of her decorative and original designs.

Liz has been on a journey with clay for over 40 years, and loves working with the basic elements of earth, fire and water that potters have used for thousands of years. She is influenced by the past but is always looking for new ways to explore this versatile medium.

Over the years, she has studied at the West Australian Institute of Technology (Curtin University), the Darwin Institute of Technology (Charles Darwin University) and Kingswood TAFE. She has also taught pottery to many primary school students. and benefitted from watching their uninhibited, innovative ways of working with clay.
