Jenny Orchard The Man Who Could See With His Knees

Jenny Orchard has been a mainstay of the Australian ceramics community for over thirty years. One of the most enduring qualities evident in Orchard's work is that she has always followed her own path. In the early 80's, when Australian ceramics journals were dominated by the endless tones of brown being produced by an earlier generation of potters, Orchard's delightful & funky domestic ware appeared like a fresh breeze in summer.
