Statements From The Artists

A Triptych of Clay Crafters

A pottery collection of Sculptural forms and functional ware by Helen Eastaway, John Marshall and Lyndell Petersen. A passion for the broad field of ceramics spanning decades these three artist are continually honing their skills in the traditional craft of pottery.
This collection encompasses a wide range of techniques, exploring the beauty and versatility of clay as a creative medium. All three artists work from the North Pine Country Park Pottery studio at Whiteside on the north side of Brisbane QLD. They share their knowledge, teach, demonstrate, exhibit, and run workshops. ‘A triptych of clay crafters’ is a showcase of eclectic skills & techniques from 3 very different potters that have the same passions for clay.

Lyndell Petersen

I am a passionate pottery and ceramic artist with a deep commitment to sharing my knowledge. I was born in the highlands of Papua New Guinea surrounded by cultural artefacts, I developed a love for handmade.

My art is not defined by any one particular style of work. I make both wheel thrown functional and large scale Sculptural Pieces. Each new idea goes through an extensive R&D, I fall in love with my pieces and each one will have a tiny bit of my heart and soul in them.

I do most of my creating in my home studio on the outskirts of North Brisbane (sometimes inside the house) I also work from my local pottery club where I can spend hours playing with clay alongside my pottery club family.

I am blissfully devoted to clay and for me it is a way of life.


John Marshall

Born in 1975 in Moree, New South Wales and currently based in Brisbane, John Marshall is a ceramic artist whose works explore the expansive narratives of the Australian landscape and the intricacies of human nature. John’s artistic journey began in the expansive environments of Queensland and the Northern Territory, instilling in him a deep appreciation for remote and contrasting landscapes. his fondness for untouched landscapes manifests in his artwork, which reflects the raw beauty and harshness of these environments, filtered through his contemplation of human behaviour and erratic disposition.

John’s practice in ceramics primarily involves creating large-scale sculptures that blend functionality with creativity. He uses both wheel-thrown and hand-building techniques to explore the human figure as well as creature and anthropomorphic forms that teeter on the fringes of reality. In his work, he engages in a dialogue with the medium, examining how the precision of mark making and construction by humans interacts with the unpredictable effects of various clay bodies and glazes. The combination of these elements symbolises a collaboration with nature.

The essence of John’s work lies in provoking and confronting, urging viewers to reflect on the complexity of our existence. His sculptures act as a visual commentary on how individual thoughts and actions resonate within our collective environments. Through his work, John strives to demonstrate the fragile interconnectedness of our world and emphasise our mutual responsibility in preserving its balance. His art invites viewers to reconsider their role in the global landscape, advocating for mindfulness and sustainable interaction with our surroundings.
