Our Vision is to supply premium, hand crafted Bonsai Pots made in Australia by Australians

Ceramics is my passion. I love the challenge of turning a lump of clay into a beautiful, useful object.


After a career in Graphic Design and Customer Service I decided it was time to do something I love, and to this end started Murrumbung Studio Ceramics.


I am the Inaugural winner of the Gary Healey Wheel Thrown Pottery Award, and have exhibited my work in group shows, including the 2017 and 2018 Bonsai Potters Exhibitions at the National Arboretum in Canberra for Bonsai Week 2017. 

Whilst I really enjoy being at the pottery wheel, my work has recently incorporated more hand built work as I strive to provide the Bonsai market with different and innovative containers.

Everything made by Murrumbung Studio Ceramics is unique. No two pieces are created the same.

I do not make items from the same mould, in the same style.

Why should the time and care invested in your tree be let down by a run-of-the-mill pot that anybody else can also buy from a local store?


Because of the recent increase in demand for our ceramics, I have begun collaborating with guest ceramicists Sue McFarland and Sarah Winter.


With their involvement I will be offering a new range of wood  and gas fired bonsai ceramics and kusamono / mame pots. Look out for their names against their work!

I am presently concentrating on offering Bonsai Ceramics, with the occasional foray into art and domestic ceramics. I hope you enjoy using my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
