Lindsay's Post Canister (Colville Clay)
Inspired by Barry Brickell's domestic ware canisters and thrown on-site at Driving Creek Potteries during a month-long residency.
My focus at Driving Creek Pottery was to make site-specific glazes from the surrounding area.
All glazes were made on-site using materials sourced or processed in the Coromandel.
Lindsay's Post glaze is a marine mudstone glaze from Paritu Wharf in the Coromandel. The clay used on this canister was collected from a roadside slip near Colville.
Named after local residency Lindsay, an old mate of Barry Brickell. Lindsay discovered the mudstone 30 years ago while digging a fence post on a neighboring farm.
