Regional travel restrictions lifted 1/6/2020. If you're visiting the Kiama area and would like to organise a private studio visit to see pottery making in action or purchase one of a kind handmade ceramics please contact me directly. Bookings for private classes (4 people maximum) will commence from 1 August. Our studio has taken all the necessary precautions to make it COVID safe, including spacing pottery wheels 1.5 metres apart, regular sanitising of surfaces and equipment, and limiting number of visitors in the studio. Thank you. 

Creating Joy

Zeynep has always found joy in her life by focusing on the things that are good, bring good and do good. She has found joy in creating ceramics, after a successful career in the Department of Education for almost 30 years, where she brought the love of learning to students and teachers alike, while raising two gorgeous boys.

Zeynep completed a Diploma in Ceramics in 2016 and since the beginning of 2018 has said goodbye to her career in the Department of Education to embrace a fulltime 'encore' career as a ceramic artist. She is continuing to teach in her studio in Gerroa to share her passion, committment and enthusiasm for pottery one pot at a time. 

Her work is an eclectic mix of contrasts - highly detailed intricate works to understated simplicity reflective of her surroundings and heritage. She prefers the philosophy of "every pot eventually finds a home" and therefore if you see it , you like it and it brings you joy, then it must have your name on it. Keep that moment, it may never come again.
