Carl McConnell

Carl McConnell (1926-2003) was born in Chicago. He attended art schools in Chicago, Dallas and Memphis, before serving in the US Navy from 1943-1945. He was stationed at Brisbane for some of this time. He continued his art studies in Pittsburgh after the war, but returned to Brisbane in 1948 with his Australian-born wife and son Phillip (1946- ). He studied art at the Brisbane Technical College, becoming interested in ceramics, setting up a studio in Norman Park in 1954, and moving to the Pinjarra Hills in 1959. He taught at the College from 1958-1963, resigning to become a full-time potter a year or so after losing the position of Head of Pottery to Milton Moon. He taught again at the College from 1971-74 and ceased working as a potter in 1983. He has come to be regarded as Queensland's most significant contemporary potter and an exemplar of the Anglo-Oriental tradition in Australia. He used a variety of marks, all well-documented in Glenn Cooke's 1986 monograph.
