The Broken Hill Potters Society was formed about 38 years ago. We are based in an old Scout Hall in Wyman St where we have our kilns. We have regular firings at our premises using electric, gas and raku kilns. Each year we have primitive firing at a member’s property where we have cowpat, pit, salt and sawdust firings. Craft Fairs and exhibitions provide us with outlets for the sale of our work. The work ‘Terra” consists of three hand built pottery bottles fired in cowpat kiln using all natural materials.
Clay from the earth.
Cowpats from the paddock.
Wood from dead trees on the property
Bottles coated with Terra Sigliata and burnished.
The Story of our pots will be in video form.
