Les Blakebrough Les Blakebrough (1932- ) came to Australia from England in 1948. He studied painting and ceramics at East Sydney Technical College from 1955-1957, then joined Ivan McMeekin as a trainee at Sturt Pottery, Mittagong, taking over as Manager from 1959-1972, and as Director of the Sturt Group of Workshops from 1964-1972. In 1963 he studied with Takeichi Kawai in Kyoto. In 1973 he was appointed senior lecturer in ceramics at the Tasmanian School of Art, setting up a studio at Mt Nelson, Hobart in 1974 which became the Pot Company in 1976. In the mid-1980s he became interested in porcelain, his research leading him to develop a clay called Southern Ice, which he currently fires unglazed using metal salts to colour the surface and a deep etching process for decoration. Since 1996, he has been Principal Research Fellow of the Ceramic Research Unit at the University of Tasmania. His work is marked with an impressed or embossed 'LB' or full signature. Les Blakebrough.

Les Blakebrough AM, SOLD Fortescue Bay Kelp Bowl # 3, 2010, Southern Ice Porcelain, H 20 x D 34cm
Australia's most celebrated and collected ceramic artist Les Blakebrough presents Blakebrough @80/5 Decades With a career that spans over 5 decades in ceramics Les Blakebrough has contributed enormously to the depth and strength of Australian ceramics. A pioneer of material, he developed and established Southern Ice Porcelain which is recognised worldwide as one of the most pure and translucent porcelain, and has been a Principal Research Fellow of the Ceramic Research Unit at the University of Tasmania since 1996. Awarded the inaugural Living Treasure: Master of Australian Craft 5 years ago which featured a touring exhibition of new work as well as publication, 2010 sees Les at his most vibrant, creating a strong new body of work to mark his 80th year. He continues to use the Southern Ice porcelain that he developed and is still enamoured with its tactile smooth nature. He exploits its luminosity, which becomes apparent when he deep carves the surface of his forms to play with the way light travels through the piece. An exhibition that celebrates an extraordinary career and man.
