Weka Ceramics

Liz Downey & Craig Powell

Craig and Liz both graduated with BFA degrees in the early 2000’s from Otago Polytechnic and are now Marlborough-based in our own well-established studio with a seasonal onsite gallery outlet. Priding themselves that each piece made is a unique work we hand produce all their wares using a lot of different techniques such as throwing, manipulation of slab and thrown ware, sprigging, scrafitto, slipping and slip trailing. All the earthenware clay used is dug from source and processed by Craig. The resulting high-fired body can withstand the rigors of the harshest of climates. The porcelain used is a locally sourced product.
