Artefacts Inc is dedicated to presenting artworks created by Tasmanian Artists, Makers and Designers working in diverse practices

Artefacts Inc  is a non profit organisation, established as a collective in 1986, run by Tasmanian artists.

Bronwyn Clarke re-established as a Studio Potter in Deep Bay, Tasmania in 2016 after an extended break from clay.  She welcomes visitors to her studio and loves telling the backstories to the diverse selection of work on display.

Bronwyn’s pots exhibit an East meets West aesthetic heavily influenced by her passion for Japanese ceramics.

Bronwyn’s throwing demonstrates a wealth of knowledge accumulated over decades. She produces a range of functional tableware and exhibition pieces. Glazes are satin matt, muted, smooth to the touch and gas fired to 1280 degrees in reduction. Bronwyn uses local Deep Bay ‘wild clay’ dug from her property, often blended with commercial clays, which provide her pots with a special point of difference. Her glaze interplay is inspired by the colours of Tasmania adding a delicious dimension to Bronwyn’s personal individuality and her special pieces.

Formally trained as a Secondary Art Teacher, through the National Art School, Sydney, Bronwyn became a Professional Potter/Educator spanning two decades commencing in the mid 70’s. She established Murramarang Pottery, at Bawley Point, on the South Coast, NSW in 1985. Bronwyn’s previous studios were located initially in Glenbrook, in the Lower Blue Mountains NSW, during the mid to late 70’s and then in Duffy’s Forest, Sydney during the early to mid 80’s.
