Free entry

The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia, Fed Square

Level 2

12 Apr 19 – 6 Oct 19

Australian potter John Dermer has an international reputation as a master craftsman in a range of techniques including wheel-thrown porcelain, terra sigillata and, in particular, the elusive and enchanting process of salt-glazed ware. He is also one of a very small number of ceramic artists who have made a continuous living from his craft as a studio potter over a remarkable fifty year career. With the emergence of a new interest in the ceramic medium by contemporary artists, the exhibition is a timely look at the tradition of studio ceramics in this country through the practice of one of our leading exponents.
