TEMPORARY STUDIO CLOSURE
The studio has closed its doors temporarily. This means there are no pottery classes running, no kilns being fired or studio visits. If you have pottery to be picked up from previous workshops, I will definitely be in touch once the studio is open again. At this stage, my online shop is still open for sales, including pottery gift vouchers (valid for 3 years) for future workshops. People will still be having birthdays, Easter, Mothers' Day and the like so why not choose a special one-off gift to post to them?
About Zeynep Testoni Ceramics
Zeynep creates functional and decorative ceramic art. Zeynep is inspired by the ocean and natural surrounds of her home in the village of Gerroa, NSW Australia.
Just as the ocean can be crystal clear and calm one day and grey and tumultuous the next, Zeynep's ceramic practice is also a little unpredictable as she prefers to approach her making with a 'go with the flow' attitude and a philosophy of the 'pot decides what it wants to be.' She believes that each piece will eventually 'find a home', even if sometimes that ‘home’ is back in the recycled clay bucket. Zeynep prefers to make in small batches with each vessel taking on a character of its own. The eclectic and diverse nature of her work means that each piece is truly unique.
Zeynep's studio is open to visitors by appointment.She conducts regular pottery classes, and one-off 'Pottery Day Out' wheel throwing experiences. With a solid background in education, teacher professional learning and educational consultancy, Zeynep can tailor packages for corporate, business and personal clients using "Clay" as the medium for creating understandings about workplace relationships, goal setting, dealing with change and working with purpose.
