Heggie, Bruce

Bruce Heggie trained with Victor Greenaway at Broomhill Pottery before setting up his own workshop at Wattle Glen in Melbourne in 1978. By 1985, he had moved to Kangaroo Flat in Bendigo, and was employing trainees to produce domestic stoneware for sale through the Crafty Kangaroo. He later moved to Lockwood, 10 kilometres from Bendigo, where he and his partner Julie Ford make production ware thrown by Heggie, decorated by Ford, and sold mainly through Bangles Gallery in Cobargo NSW. In the late 1990s, Heggie constructed an anagama-style woodfiring kiln that takes 60-90 hours to fire. Woodfiring has now become a passionate interest for Heggie, while Ford has started making one-off decorative pieces. Their work may be found in the shop at the Bendigo Pottery complex, where Heggie demonstrates throwing on weekends. The mark in the 1981 potters' directory is 'H' and in 1986 'Bendigo Australia Earth & Fire Pottery Hand thrown stoneware'. Another version of this mark just reads 'Earth & Fire Pottery'. More recent work may be printed 'Bruce Heggie Pottery Handmade Bendigo Australia' or impressed 'Bruce Heggie Pottery Australia'.
