Neville Assad-Salha

Neville Assad-Salha (1954- ) is a second generation Australian whose parents came from Lebanon to South Australia in the 1920s. As Neville Assad (Salha is his family's Lebanon village name) he studied at the South Australian School of Art, taking time out to visit Lebanon and work in a village pottery making large-scale water jars on a kick wheel. After graduating in 1976, he established a pottery studio in an old congregational church at Dutton, east of the Barossa Valley. There, he and Lynette Nitschke set up the Dutton Pottery, making production ware with a painted 'Dutton Pottery' mark. Over the years, Assad-Salha has travelled extensively overseas to work with other artists. He has also pursued a university career at the University of South Australia and the Jam Factory where he was head of the Ceramics Studio from 1999-2003. Since 2010, he has been Assistant Professor of Fine Arts at the American University of Beirut, returning to Australia every year to spend time at his Dutton studio. In his own practice, he makes vessel forms on a scale from small bowls to large installation works, many constructed from steel, clay, bronze and sometimes stone. While we have an example of the Dutton Pottery mark, we don't yet know how he marked his own work.
