Guy Boyd

Guy Boyd (1923-1988) was born in Murrumbeena, Victoria, where he learnt to make pottery as a child in his father Merric Boyd's studio. After serving as a corporal in the war, he trained as a sculptor at the East Sydney Technical College. In 1946, to help fund his studies, he set up the Martin Boyd Pottery in Cremorne with partners Norma and Leonard Flegg. In 1951, he sold his share of the pottery to Leonard's brother Ronald and returned to Melbourne, setting up the Guy Boyd Pottery in Bentleigh in 1952. He and his wife Phyllis operated the pottery until 1964, when he sold it to devote himself full-time to sculpture. Work made at the Guy Boyd Pottery is incised 'Guy Boyd'.
