Award winning Ceramic Artist Fiona Tunnicliffe has been working as a full time potter for 25 years. Her beautiful pieces almost always use animal forms as a starting point. Each of Fiona’s rather special formed ceramic animals seems to exude its own unique personality enhanced by the textures, patterns, text, and relief work to its coat and shape. Her work is collected and treasured widely.
Fiona has won numerous accolades for her work including people’s choice awards and overall section winners at key New Zealand Art and Ceramic exhibitions.
Fiona divides her time between making and selling in Galleries from Whangarei to Dunedin, and teaching ceramic art. In the last few years she has taught weekend workshops, night classes, children’s classes and sculpture workshops.
Black Door Gallery is proud to exhibit a continual selection of Fiona’s most recent works.
“I love being involved in the huge wealth of information that there is to be learned about pottery and ceramics and will take every opportunity to learn from the people around me and pass it on to others.”- Fiona Tunnicliffe
