Introducing Hands On Pottery to the Shop Fringe!


Hands on Pottery AU studio is a small handmade ceramics label based in Penrith. Run by husband and wife duo, Steve and Cushla, these two are dedicated to their craft.

They take their wares to the masses –  they are a regular at the Glebe markets and certainly have their own following.

The Fringe caught up with Steve for a tour of their studio, in the backyard of their home in Penrith. It’s a charming den of creativity… with finished pieces stacked on racks and hanging from shelving, with various ovens firing away their latest creations. It’s hard not to feel inspired in this space, where each piece is made lovingly by hand. There are so many wonderful and individual pieces – we just wanted to touch them all, the textures and glazes and beautiful shapes.

They love producing items with meaning, theirs are pieces to be re-used time and time again and to be shared.

Hands on Pottery pieces are meant to be loved, not only for their functionality but also the beauty of glazes and tactile finishes.

We hope you enjoy shopping the Hands on Pottery collections in our online shop. More pieces will be added to the shop so make sure you stop by of follow our socials to see when pieces are up for grabs.

When you buy from The Creative Fringe you are supporting a small locally owned, handmade artisan business just like Steve’s.
