TED SECOMBE: Master Potter & Sculptor
After 30 years working as a professional ceramic artist
, Ted has expanded his horizons and moved into sculpture
. He now prefers much simpler forms, with the sense of an easy curve, "like a brush stroke" and works from his studio situated on top of a hill with magnificent views over the Yarra Valley.
Ted's long career with clay includes many exhibitions in Japan, Europe, Us and Australia and his pots can be found in over 30 permanent collections worldwide
. Ted's work can be seen in public places including Crown Towers and Chadstone Shopping Centre and as signature pieces throughout hotel lobbies worldwide.
"I approach my work with permanence in mind, there are no short cuts or gimmicks and sculptures and ceramic pieces are realised from skills acquired from over 30 years of full time art practise
