COLOUR AND FANTASY: Australia’s First Colonial Art Potters 1896-1910

Event Details

In the nineteenth century, Brunswick was the centre of Australia’s pottery manufacturing and was accordingly dubbed “Australia’s Little Staffordshire.” The exhibition focuses on three key figures from this period; The Ferry brothers, William and Graham, and Richard Sturrock. This trio’s loose collaboration produced exceptional wares from 1896 to 1910 of a type never before seen in Australia. They are considered early pioneers of our studio pottery movement and went on to illuminate and inspire their predecessors.
