Malcolm Greenwood- One day guest lecture- Workshop techniques and tips from a full time potter. Saturday August 25

Malcolm Greenwood has been a full time professional potter since 1989. His work can be found in many Australian restaurants, including Southern Ocean Lodge, Longitude 131, Capella Lodge, Park Hyatt Hotel, The Bentley Restaurant and Bar, Monopole, Yellow, Masuya Group, Single Origin Roasters, Patricia’s Coffee Brewers, Aqua Dining, Ormeggio, Bennelong, Bathers Pavilion, Nomad, Firedoor, Rengaya and Artemis (Singapore)


Malcolm Greenwood’s work has been featured in many of Australia’s leading design and style magazines, food magazines and in the books of several of Australia’s leading chefs.

A potter does not have his work gracing the tables of so many restaurants and magazine pages without reliable polished making techniques and practical production methodology. I’ve known Malcolm for many years and I’ve come to see Malcolm as a maker who blends a Japanese aesthetic with functional contemporary design. Years of experience help Malcolm select the most efficient production techniques to suit the brief. All of this from an urban Home studio in Sydney.

Malcolm Greenwood regularly conducts workshops/demonstrations providing participants the opportunity to learn and absorb some of the skills and experience he has gained during his 37 years as a potter. Malcolm’s training began with a period of study with  Japanese master potter Makoto Yabe. This experience has set sound foundations for his current production. Malcolm makes his living entirely from selling his work and hosting short workshops.

Malcolm will share, some of the techniques he utilizes to make pots, such as throwing off the hump without water and making slab rollers obsolete. He will also cover the blending of his production tableware with the creation of his exhibition work.

Malcom will also share some of the experience he has gained marketing and making a living from his work over the last 20 years.

If you are looking for some insight into the life of a successful production potter combined with workshop tips and techniques  Then this workshop is for you.

Please join us for a day of inspiration.

Simone Fraser-Iconoplastic is now open at Sabbia Gallery Paddington


ICONOPLASTIC – Icons and Idiosyncrasies- 27 June to 21 July 2018

The title of this exhibition is a play on words – some of the forms are a reference to the use of the vessel in ritual practice. It is also a reference to the plastic medium itself and its place in the visual arts.

I have always seen the forms I make as icons – symbols or metaphors for my story. The vessel ¬is not just a timeline, it is a conduit – because it is familiar to everyone – it opens up an immediate conversation with the viewer who can then focus on the content and ideas within it.

Some of the story in this show involves a reference to ritual function that vessels are used for in formal ceremony. My vessels symbolise an alternative message to the, authoritarian, masculine ritual vessels associated with some religious practise. They suggest a different dialogue, one that embraces beauty and the feminine. Icons freed from constraints of ritual and patriarchy – balanced – equilibrium.

The collision of references in my work has always reflected the archaeological, the environmental and the contemporary. I try and meld these together to produce a personal statement in clay. This exhibition is typical. It still seems to me the vessel form is uniquely placed to capture the spirit of the past with the concerns of the present.
