Woodfired Pottery is managed by John who has built his first Bourré box kiln in 1986
John has worked from his studio at Glen Huon on the edge of Tasmania’s South-West wilderness area for over 30 years. In 2017 he re-located to a bush setting at Mt Nelson. His work depicts the wilderness colours of Tasmania, glowing with the effects of flame and wood-ash which are special to the wood firing techniques he uses. The glazes and clay slips are intended to echo deep rainforest greens, soft moss colours and the blues of the night skies. Form, light and shadow, and the spaces between, have become an increasing area of contemplation.
Hand-Made Pots, Stoneware and Porcelain Clays
“John Martin is the best potter in Tasmania. I highly recommend visiting his shop in rural Glen Huon (be alert! We drove past it three times before we realized where we should turn). He sells pottery at Salamanca Market in Hobart on Saturdays; at other times, you might call to be sure he is there before driving to the pottery. His work is lovely (I cherish his green glazes), and his vases and bowls are most impressive. His pieces are gorgeous, affordable, and make great gifts, souvenirs, decorations and wares.
The pottery and show room are in a converted barn on farm property, and his kiln is there as well. Martin is a kindly man, and you will enjoy visiting him.” – kss MD PhD
