Artist Statement

Chris Myers has now been making pottery for 45 years. He established the Kaligda Pottery in Frankston, Victoria in 1967 and the Beachside Pottery in Aspendale, Victoria in 1984.

His work has mainly been one-off wheel-thrown pieces decorating using sandblasting techniques and finishing with low fired lustres. The idea is to create changing patterns through different light intensities and illusion.

He is also currently working on large hand-built forms at mid-range temperatures to imitate the colours of the Australian landscape and rock surfaces.

Chris also lectured at the Caulfield Institute of Technology, which became the Chisholm Institute of Technology and finally Monash University – a total of 24 years.

He is represented in most of the major public collections in Australia.
