A pottery production site, supporting local artists and artists in residence on site.
The principles & philosophy at Commonage Pottery is as universal as possible, producing objects that are real & utilitarian. The subtlety of the evolvement of the finest materials shaped with intense skill can produce basic sensitivity. In a world where skills are being ignored & shunned, they believe in them, not only in the act of producing a better product but in the sheer joy of doing and becoming.
Nestled amongst a beautiful vineyard & lovely gardens with a self-tasting cellar door, Commonage Pottery is an ideal studio to immerse oneself amongst tranquil lessons and a collector's paradise. It's a space that showcases almost all styles of pottery. From Raku Pottery to wood-fired, reduction fired copper reds to crystalline glazes- it is a gallery where pottery is still the core approach.
Echoing the ethos of production pottery, Gary Hambleton is busy producing his varied range of functional pottery & and to add experiential value to space. Japneet Keith, an Industrial designer, is successfully running classes along with supporting the production facility.
The gallery proudly represents local WA potters: Kim Potter, Gary Hambleton, Greg Crowe, Victoria Malone, Beverly Mcmohan, Sandra Vernonrose, Sue Jones, Japneet Keith, Kay Manolas, Hayley Bangham, with strong support from Alison Brown for any occasion.
