Hi! I’m Claire Atkins, the hands behind Pinky & Maurice, a ceramics studio located in the sleepy village of South Golden Beach in the shire of Byron Bay, NSW.
I graduated from the College of Fine Arts in Sydney 20 years ago, and since then I’ve enjoyed a diverse career juggling my studio practice with ‘real jobs’ in the Arts in public relations and as a creative director on community and international cultural festivals.
My greatest adventure to date brings together my love for clay and words in an exciting new role for 2017 as Editor of Content for The Journal of Australian Ceramics (JAC).
The JAC is Australia’s most widely read contemporary ceramics journal, and it’s a huge privilege for me to be working on a magazine that has been championing Australian ceramics for over 50 years!
Whether I’m writing about pots or making them, there’s always good stuff going on in the studio.
