Lindsay Muir

 

  Lindsay Muir was born in Stanthorpe in 1964. Since completing a Diploma of Visual Arts (Ceramics Major) in 1984, he has worked in potteries on Norfolk Island, the Sunshine Coast and in England. Most of that time was spent at the wheel throwing domestic ware.

Lindsay's real love has always been hand building with clay. Since 1991 he has concentrated solely on developing unique ideas and techniques to create the pieces we see today.

The colours are underglazes which are applied to the finished piece and then kiln fired to 1100C.  This results in a permanent vibrant finish which helps to bring the clay to life. 

"The rainforest is a constant inspiration to me to create in clay what I see, hear, smell and feel in this special environment.  I try to bring the clay to life by recreating the textures, colours and atmosphere of the rainforest and the creatures in it."

Lindsay's work has been used to illustrate the innovative children's picture book "Green Air" by Jill Morris.
