MOYRA ELLIOTt: THE LEADING LADIES

The Leading Ladies is a recount of New Zealand’s first studio potters. There were several who started in the 1920s and 1930s, all were women and they began well in advance of the mid-century pottery culture that was male dominated. Two of these women pioneers were local, Briar Gardner of the Clark Brick and Tile family in New Lynn and Olive Jones who lived in Onehunga. However, five early women will be covered in this talk, although there were more than this – pottery was a popular profession for some and hobby for many in this period. This talk is held as part of the West Auckland Heritage Conference and in conjuction with the exhibition Leading Ladies - bookings required via the conference website.
