I am thrilled and delighted to be joining The Australian Ceramics Association Board as a director. For me, the Australian Ceramics Association has provided a really vital way to be part of the broader ceramics community through its newsletter, magazine, workshops, talks, triennales and open studios. . In each instance I have been enriched and challenged by new ways of thinking and making, forging new connections and expanding my horizons far beyond my studio. In my new role I look forward to supporting potters around the country and raising the profile of ceramics.
