PAINT AUSTRALIAN POTTERY PRE MADE ANIMALS _ PORT MACQUARIE HAND MADE_Great for TOURISTS! 

Come to Clay Koala and have a look in my small gallery and retail of local made pottery and artworks.

Paint a koala, whale, koala or a flower! Maybe more maybe there like a kangaroo or Starfish! Support given, studio time and materials.

I make these on site in my business.

Since pottery needs to be fired and you maybe here on holidays. The process can take up to 2 weeks. If you want to glaze your items, we can and you can pay a small amount for postage since they are small!

The already fired items I have made can be painted with acrylics and I will spay with clear gloss. They can be made into a magnet or a necklace or leave as an ordainment of your time in Port Macquarie. Ideas in the garden, on a table.

Business hours are 1230- 530- Wednesday to Friday and Sat mornings. Happy for an SMS or call as we are there at others times doing work at the studio, the kilns the process of making an item.
