However, over the last few years Liz has developed an interest in ceramics and her love of ancient Chinese and Greek pottery. Her mother was a potter, so she has always been curious about ‘having a go’. “A few years ago I bought an old potter’s wheel at a garage sale. I took some lessons with Greg Crowe, a well-known Australian potter, and I was hooked immediately,” Her passion for ancient Chinese, Greek and Egyptian style pottery has led her to experiment with different clays and glazes to achieve an effect of old treasures. Liz’s ceramics collection include wheel-thrown stoneware, using latex resist for decoration taken from ancient times and incorporating colours, tones and textures, brought about through experimentation with glazing and chemical reactions.
