Kneading our Clay
Making a Big One
Made in Australia, because we dig it!
All our pottery is made from our own clay that's dug and processed at the pottery. We are the only boutique pottery in Queensland that does this. We call it Quandamooka (pronounced kwon-da-moo-ka) Clay after the First Australians who lived in our region. Their totem, the Quandamooka is the name they gave the Dugong or sea cow, a sea mammal like the dolphin. The clay, which was used as body paint by the Quandamooka, is a terracotta stoneware suitable for both forms of ceramic. Blessed by a Quandamooka elder, it really is a unique Australian product.
