About the Creator

Rhiannon is a ceramicist and painter living in subtropical paradise at Buckra Bendinni, Australia with her partner James, their dog and two cats.

Rhiannon grew up in the Hunter Valley amongst a very creative family. Her earliest creative interests included illustration, soft pastels, watercolour and ceramics. She also dreamed of becoming a clay animator, spending hours modelling with plasticine (and taking up the entire kitchen table with her miniature worlds!).

For the last 10 years, Rhiannon has been pursuing her interests in people, animals and the environment, gaining a degree in zoology and working across a plethora of programs and roles in community services. Somewhere along the line she realised she was craving that most familiar and critical part of her being – the exploration of creativity.

These days, Rhiannon is making more room in her life for the pursuit of art.

Vision

Rhiannon’s work is inspired by the natural world that surrounds all of us. She sees an ever increasing disconnect between humans, animals and our habitat, and hopes to convey a visual and emotional connection to the beauty, colour, delicacy and richness that our environment has to offer. Rhiannon has two signature ceramic collections…

Leaf Print Collection – a delicate and whimsical line of bowls, plates, cups, jewellery and accessories with seasonal and native plant prints. The beauty of this collection is in its simplicity, obvious connection to nature, and the seasonal aspect of the line which dictates availability.

Rustic Earth Collection – a rustic and earthy line of decorative bowls, plates, jewellery and accessories in a range of rich colours.

Soft Pastel Landscapes – painted on location, from memory, from heart and from reference, Rhiannon creates small colour-happy pieces.

Rhiannon is an avid supporter of local, handmade and sustainable products. She sources supplies as locally and sustainably as possible, and uses materials such as post-consumer recycled cotton and paper, hemp, linen and cellophane in her works and packaging.
