Galleries & Artisans


Bill Meiklejohn's pottery studio and gallery is open every day.

Be different and take the road less travelled and explore the pristine Margaret River area of Wilyabrup. At Wilyabrup Dreaming you will be greeted by Lola, the Australian Shepherd, then delight in the many unique forms which Bill Meiklejohn creates in his peaceful studio, nestled amongst the bush.

Bill's work covers a huge range, from one off hand built pieces to beautiful, yet functional household vessels. His work is perfect for yourself or for a gift. Choose from his exclusive stress release cowrie shells to large mythical bunyips, perfect for the garden pond. Take home a piece of Wilyabrup Dreaming pottery and you will have in your hands a sense of that special place known as 'Down South'.

Turn down Wilyabrup Road to find something wonderful. Leave time to further explore Wilyabrup on foot.
Ask Bill for directions to the unspoilt wilderness of the Wilyabup Cliffs.

More information

Bill Meiklejohn's clay work ranges from the functional to the fantastic. There are coffee cups, plates, bowls, teapots, platters, casserole dishes, antipasto bowls, vases and many more. Many of these are also hand-worked to create something totally original, such as his casserole dish with an octopus curled around and over it. There are also handcrafted pieces, which are completely unique to Bill, such as his cornucopia pots cleverly thrown then cut and re-worked to make that extraordinary spiral form.

Bill says "I work from my home studio in Wilyabrup called Wilyabrup Dreaming. Most of my creative work draws on the ocean for inspiration. I guess this is a result of being a keen surfer and diver for much of my life".

Bill takes orders for special one-off pieces or to help you continue adding to your collection of Wilyabrup Dreaming.

Pottery, art, jewelry and wine tasting all at one location. Worth the drive all the gravel road ( only a short distance).
Nic Scheltema
Beautiful pottery. Great blokes. Well worth a squizz.
Darren Excell
Beautiful pottery work, tucked away off Caves Road. Consider heading further down the road while you're there and taking the walk to look out over the Wilyabrup Cliffs.
