the working potter & pottery that works

Welcome to the artisanal site of award winning, Far North Queensland potter Ken Ison.  Artisanal businesses still bear the hand and heart of their creator; they are small, and dedicated to high quality.

Ken is a retired builder who is indulging his passion for pottery. The work you find on these pages encompasses his skills as a woodworker and builder, to produce unique sculptured and wheel thrown works in clay. Ken’s creations are unique, and in addition to re-inventing items in daily use, he revives your treasured memories.

Wander through the gallery and admire his highly coloured Raku pottery and amazing Teapots. In the shop you will find pots and pannikins, burners and mossies, platters and bowls, all fired in Ken’s North Queensland inspired tropical glazes.
