Our Potters

There are hundreds of studio potters and ceramists all over Australia producing unique, beautiful work. At Living Clay Australia we have focussed on the ones who specialise in innovative, functional pottery items that you can use, enjoy and display on a daily basis.

In addition to displaying and selling their work, we are also keen to promote and celebrate the individual artists and potters who produce them, so every item in our online gallery tells you a story about who created it, how it was made and some facts on the individual potter as well. The Potter's profile will be retained in our database for as long as they continue to be part of the Living Clay family even if they do not have any pieces to sell right now so you can look them up at any time.

If you are a potter yourself viewing this site and would like to find out more about how to become part of the Living Clay Australia family, just drop us a note through the contact us page and we will send you a link to access more information on how it all works. We will need to know a little more about you and your work and will also ask you to send us a couple of photographs of some recent pieces to start that ball rolling.

“I want to create pieces that people use everyday, lovely things that you can have out and are not afraid to use and enjoy. That’s what I’m really aiming for – beautiful functional pots that people love to use.” Elke Lucas

Elke’s background as a potter began when she married into a family of potters and worked as a studio potter on the North Devon Coast in the UK making slip decorated earthenware inspired by the earthenware tradition in that area. She always felt drawn to porcelain however, loving the translucent delicate quality of the clay. Elke was particularly influenced by the great studio potter Lucie Rie and has enjoyed the opportunity to experiment with different clays and techniques.

Elke has set up her ceramics studio in Noosa on the Sunshine Coast where she makes wheel thrown, high-fired porcelain. The decoration on the pots is minimal, using natural oxides, which allows the elegant shapes and the quality of the porcelain body to shine through resulting in pots that have a natural sophistication and a beautiful quiet presence.

Elke's pots are fired to a high temperature (1280c) to give them durability and strength.  Her work is food safe and if handled with care to avoid scratching and thermal shock  dishwasher safe too.
