After working for many years with clay and fire in the Mid West and South West of WA, Ian studied toward a Master of Visual Arts at Monash University. This included two months based at Monash’s Prato campus in Italy.
Ian and wife Beth established a private studio at their home property. Ian concentrates on individual sculptural pieces and multiple piece experimental ceramics. He has completed a number of larger-scale public and private commissions using cast ceramic techniques, steel, masonry and concrete. The making of useful pots continues at various times each year keeping Ian in touch with the disciplines of ceramic art.
Ian’s architectural ceramic art commissions have featured in several texts and magazines published in the UK, China and the USA.
