We are very pleased to announce that we have published a beautiful book on the history of our Group.
The Pictorial History of Port Hacking Potters Group is a 96 page book, with over 200 photographs, that records the vitality and growth of the Group from its foundation in 1962 to the present day.
PHPG was established at a key point in time in the development of Australian pottery and its history reflects the experimentation and technological change in the world of ceramics over six decades. The extensive archival material of photographs, newsletters, newspaper articles, and catalogues traces the Group’s contribution to these developments through activities such as workshops, conferences and the influence of the PHPG National Exhibition and Competition which has been felt widely since 1962.
The book reflects local history such as its contribution to the establishment of Hazelhurst Arts Centre but also marks the strong links PHPG has established with the wider pottery community, both nationally and internationally.
In the Foreword two renowned potters, Merran Esson and Susie McMeekin, give their thoughts on the influence of Port Hacking Potters Group on the ceramics scene over six decades of competitions and exhibitions and through the energy brought by its enthusiastic members striving for professionalism and excellence in this field.

Several of our older members have retired. The contents of their studios have been donated to help us raise funds for a potter who lost all but his house in the ferocious bush fires in December 2019.
Steve Harrison and his partner Janine King are both well liked and respected by our members. Steve taught many of us at TAFE and many of our members have attended special firing days at their property in Balmoral Village in the Southern Highlands of NSW. The pottery studio and kiln building workshop were burnt to the ground and Steve barely escaped by preparing a just in case kiln fibre shelter.
With no buildings to store materials we will sell off the donated materials and give the money so they can buy what they need to get back on their feet.
We will have 3 Silent Auctions so even non-potters will find something of interest on our Sale Day.
Our thanks go to the Management of Hazelhurst Arts Centre for their support.
More details will be posted on Facebook and Instagram in the coming weeks.
