Pottery for Beginners: A Short Introduction starting 30/4
Roy Chandra (Snow Monkey Pottery) completed a Diploma in Visual Arts in Ceramics in 2018. His ceramic works are largely inspired by Japanese Pottery, however he often experiments with many different styles, including more contemporary forms and designs. He particularly loves wheel-thrown pottery and discussing about new ideas. Some of his recent works can be found at Sturt Gallery in Mittagong and Chinaclay in Clovelly.
