Fiona Cuthbert O’Meara is a contemporary ceramicist and interdisciplinary artist. Her unique ceramic practice is a fusion of the hand built and the wheel thrown, the functional and the sculptural as she explores her love of the organic through the exploration of clay, metal, textiles and installation.
Fiona is the director, teacher and artist in residence here at Naturemuse Ceramics and her own creative practice is multi-faceted. Her work is inspired by both earthly processes and ongoing connections between object, person, place and the art of “being”.
Designed to bring the beauty of the wild outdoors into your home, her handcrafted functional ceramics and naturalistic vessels are sure to be much loved conversation pieces in your home,
Fiona Cuthbert O’Meara’s most recent range of stunning rustic hand crafted Collectors Pieces will inspire and activate your living spaces. Drawing on the endless inspiration from the surrounding Sunshine Coast’s stunning coastline and hinterland, all pieces are one-off and unique and perfectly imperfect.
Known for her handcrafted coil thrown vessels which have been textured by natural found objects from our ocean shores, along with delicate sculptural vessels on timber bases filled with pooled crystal glazes, these are just some of the extraordinary objects from our latest collection.
Fiona exhibits her work in galleries and spaces throughout the Sunshine Coast. We invite you to visit our online store to view the current range of unique collectors pieces available now.
Fiona delivers regular workshops with a focus on authentic artistic expression for a range of skill levels specialising in wheel throwing, hand building and ceramic glazing and offers many different firing modalities, including wood-firing in her recently built Anagama Kiln on her Doonan property at Naturemuse Ceramic Studio.
With a focus on mindfulness practices and a connection to the earth and its precious resources, classes are suitable for beginners through to intermediate levels.
You will be surprised how working with soft, malleable clay effects your overall feelings of well-being, self-esteem and resilience as you try your hand at a whole new skill set. Just bring a little curiosity and a willingness to drop into the present moment and try something new!
