Artist Profile: DM Pottery

I discovered Denise McDonald when I was recently at the Eveleigh Artisans' Market.

I liked her work so much, I thought I would share it with you.

DM Pottery was established in 1996 and Denise has been potting ever since then.

Denise says she gets inspiration from "the natural world around me, from ammonite fossils on the Jurassic coast of England to the colours and patterns to be found on the bark of Australian eucalyptus trees"

What I was most drawn to was her works featuring the Flannel Flower.

The flannel flower pattern was taken from an old Australian Federation pane of textured glass. She then made a plaster cast of this glass and uses this cast to reproduce the Art Nouveau flower design in a number of works she produces.

I LOVE these dessert/condiment bowls

The colour of this teacup is divine

The neck of this vase is so pretty

She even makes these pretty earrings
