ENGLUND, Ivan; Rosey morn no.1
In 1956, Ivan Englund (1915–2007) became one of the four founding members of the Potters Society of Australia. He taught art and ceramics in institutions in Canberra and across Victoria and New South Wales, and from 1972 to 1977, he conducted the Ivan Englund Pottery School at the Rocks in Sydney. His early work evolved under the influence of Japanese potter Shoji Hamada and his British follower, Bernard Leach. Englund’s work on glazes required extensive research, and he published two books on the subject, for which he received a doctorate from Wollongong University in 1995. Rosey morn no.1 c.1980, with its copper glaze, is an exceptional example of his innovative practice.
