Glost Studios is a small leafy ceramic studio in Dulwich Hill, run by Ciane Pothin. The studio provides a comfortable and harmonious space for its members to explore their interest in pottery and ceramics. Glost is equipped with top of the line Shimpo Whisper-T pottery wheels and hand building facilities, as well as an electric kiln and an array of glazes. All classes consist of a 2 or 2.5 hour session and are catered towards ages 16 and up. You will learn the fundamentals of either hand building or wheel throwing with clay, while being encouraged to explore designs and techniques to create ceramic objects that are wholly unique and special to you. All clay, tools, glazes and equipment is supplied

Outside of being a creative space, Glost offers a small range of hand-built pottery for purchase. Ciane is a ceramicist and Visual Arts teacher, with an intuitive art making process. Due to the handmade nature of her work no two pieces are the same, ensuring every ceramic work created is a ‘one of a kind’. Her practice predominantly uses wheel throwing techniques; however, she invites a relationship between the sculpture and its maker, purposefully creating imperfections in her once refined forms.

Really enjoyed Ciane’s class, it’s my first time doing pottery and I learned a lot in 2 that hours. The class is small which is great because students get sufficient attention and are able to ask questions and being shown how to fix / smooth the pieces we were working on. Looking forward to my pottery items in a few weeks.
