Artisan Pottery

Artisan Pottery is in part of a large weatherboard building which was built about 100 years ago when the Tamar Valley area was part of the thriving apple and pear producing industry in Tasmania. Nowadays the studio is surrounded by vineyards! It showcases the works of Lisa Boyter and Rudolf Sibrava. Lisa Boyter began potting in 1970 in Edinburgh, Scotland. In 1972 she emigrated to Australia and settled first in WA before moving to Tasmania where she studied ceramics at the University of Tasmania. Over the last 30 years her work has changed from large hand built pieces to the fine porcelain bowls and vases she is producing today. Born in Prague, Czech Republic in 1949, Rudolf Sibrava migrated to Australia in 1969. In 1980 he settled in Tasmania and studied ceramics at the Tasmanian State Institute of Technology (now the University of Tasmania). In 1989 Sibrava established Artisan Pottery with fellow potter, Lisa Boyter. Rudolf’s current work exhibits his mastery of the technique of hand throwing.

Greenoaks Gallery

Greenoaks Gallery in Launceston is a unique neighbourhood gallery located on the picturesque St Georges Square park.
The gallery features the work of resident artist, Dan Villiers, who works in a wide variety of styles and mediums, including pastel, watercolour, acrylic, drawing and encaustic painting.

Dan paints scenery, flora and fauna from the region in and around Launceston and Northern Tasmania and is happy to talk to visitors about his work and his process of creation.
