Melissa is an Australian ceramic artist who lives in Scarborough, QLD. Her ceramic career spans over 20 years.
She was raised by parents who were passionate about the arts and they loved to be surrounded by pieces they collected over the years. During her last year of school (1986), Melissa and her parents visited a family friend who is a master potter. It was a life changing moment, as she and her family arrived at his studio, just as he was opening his kiln.
That was when Melissa decided that she wanted to become a ceramic artist and specialize in crystalline glazes.
Melissa’s work focuses on simple and elegantly shaped forms (which she throws on a potters wheel) to showcase the beauty of crystalline glazes and porcelain with colours inspired by her natural environment surroundings.
