I was recently reading the Australian Gourmet Traveler magazine, when I noticed that the bowls used in an article were those of Malcolm Greenwood’s, potter extraordinaire of Sydney.
When I asked him if they were indeed his bowls, he said, “Yes, they are my bowls!! no doubt there was no mention of the maker. Rockpool is using my plates and bowls for all of their mains now,”
That is so true! Why don’t they credit the artist of the pottery in the photo? Often times, it will say, “Props property of food stylist” or some such, but they SHOULD have to give credit to the potter for the plate or bowl which the food sits upon!
Here are some examples of his work! Fabulous!
In a previous blog post, I talked about the “slow food” movement and the resultant effect should also be the “slow pottery” movement.
By the way, congrats to Malcolm Greenwood! That is so awesome that your pots are so gorgeous and that they are being used in a famous restaurant!

Another great web article about Malcolm is HERE,
I recently attended a workshop that he did at the Gold Coast Potters Association (see blog post about that here) and it was fantastic! Learned so much and my pottery is improving based on techniques that he taught!
We are talking about him doing a workshop here at my studio! So if you are interested in attending, be sure to let me know as places will be limited.
