The extraordinary landscape of Central Australia comes to life with exciting new ceramics by the Hermannsburg Potters, a group of Arrernte women artists who create hand-built terracotta pots that vibrantly depict life and culture in the Central Desert.

The Hermannsburg Potters follow in the footsteps of world renowned artist Albert Namatjira, as they take inspiration from his love of country. A hand-picked selection of watercolour paintings by Arrernte artists Douglas Abbott and Lenie Namatjira, granddaughter of Albert Namatjira, will accompany these magnificent pots.
