The 2nd in our Friends of DEA exhibition series features work by some of the exceptional potters working from the legendary Sydney clay studio, Claypool.

Curated by Sibylla 'Billie' Robertson.

A collective founded by potters, for potters, Claypool has been home to hundreds of artists since its doors first opened almost a decade ago.

Currently operated by ceramicists
Brett Stone, Sally Cooper and Cherie Peyton, Claypool is a thriving and friendly clay studio that is a testament to success of spaces that grow with the art of making in mind.

Offering classes, studio spaces, exhibitions and educational events, Claypool is an integral member of the ceramics community, and we're thrilled to work with them in our Friends of DEA exhibition series.


With an emphasis on innovation, passion, and communal resources, Claypool houses a wide range of making and aesethetics - something we readily embrace here at The DEA Store!

This show will truly highlight the individual personalities and masterminds working out of the Botany-based creative hub.

The DEA Store understands the vital role studios have in supporting and enabling artists to make beautiful work.

While our space functions as a temporary home between maker and buyer, we see our Friends of DEA exhibitions as opportunities to collapse those spaces and acknowledge the distinct personalities and creative output of our local institutions.

We love the ethos behind Claypool, and are thrilled to be able to host a selection of their works from members such as Erez Ben-Or, Asahi So, Emma Young and Issy Parker, with many more to be announced! 


Please note: all works will be available to view and purchase in-store.
There will be no website release for this show, however online purchases can be made via enquiry.

Artists featured above in order of images:
Jiyoung Jung, Catherine Field, Rachael Hegh, Asahi Ho and Issy Parker.
