Steve Harrison

Steve Harrison (1952- ) is a woodfirer, teacher and kiln designer living at Balmoral Village where he set up the Loopline Pottery with Janine King in 1977. The two make pottery together under the Loopline Pottery label as well as running the Kiln and Clay Technology Company Hot and Sticky and making one-off pieces under their own names. Their aim is to be completely self-sustainable as potters. Harrison was born in England, but came to Australia in 1956. He obtained a Ceramics Certificate from the East Sydney Technical College in 1971-72, then spent a year at Terrey Hills with the Japanese potter Shigeo Shiga before establishing a small workshop - Steve's Pottery - at nearby Beacon Hill. Between 1975 and 1976, he and Janine King briefly took over the Jenner Road studio in Dural, NSW, from Malina Reddish and Dennis Monks. King had also studied ceramics at East Sydney Technical College and became an exhibiting member of the Australian Potters' Society in 1976. Pursuing a research interest in woodfiring using local clays and glazes, Harrison obtained a Post Certificate from ESTC in 1978, an MA Hons from Wollongong University in 1995, and a PhD from the University of Western Sydney in 1998. As well as working in clay, he makes works in metal, stainless steel, aluminium and cast bronze. King has been exhibiting regularly since 1975 and was a finalist in the Meroogal Women's Art prize in 2004 and 2008. Harrison's works are impressed 'SH' in a square with the S inside the H. An early version has the 'S' and 'H' joined together. King's works are impressed 'JK' and sometimes incised 'King'. The Steve's Pottery mark is an impressed 'SP', the Jenner's Road pottery mark is an impressed 'JRP' and the Loopline Pottery mark is an impressed 'LLP'.
