Jacky Overington, Artist, Potter.

Jacky Overington

I am a potter and sculptor who makes interesting things out of clay. No two pieces are exactly the same, as each is hand made and decorated by me.


Much of what I make is inspired by the natural world, particularly Australian animals and plants. I believe in learning, sharing and doing good where you can.

My Story

In 1999 in Brisbane I walked underneath the Sandgate Town Hall via a wonky side door.  Down in that Dungeon room I found passionate potters who gave community clay lessons for $2 an evening. I went down there once a week with my young daughter. I was hooked and my learning commenced from there.   


My art leans towards the world of animals, birds, plants and observations of the earth we live on. I wish for Australian animals, waterways and forests to be safe from all harm. I hope that we humans learn to love, respect and protect nature before it is too late to save it.   


Today, I feel very fortunate to have met and made friends with fellow artists of the Iluka Emporium. My partner Tim has built for me, a beautiful pottery studio in Iluka where I can create and teach others the joy of clay. I believe in sharing, giving, co-operating and learning.
