Simon Reece – Cragg 1


In stock

Simon Reece studied ceramics at The National Art School in 1980. Completing his studies, he set up a studio in Blackheath, NSW, and taught ceramics at Nepean TAFE before travelling to Japan and working for ceramic master, Uneo Norihide in Bizen in 1985, where he learned the art of wood firing ceramics and developing a strong sense of ceramic aesthetics. These skills and methodologies still dominate and inform his work practice. Returning to Australia, Simon became a journeyman potter building wood kilns and firing work with other ceramic artists, building on the skills he had learnt in Japan. In 1997, Simon set up another studio in Blackheath, NSW. Constantly adapting and always working with different clays and developing glazes from raw materials, Simon has worked creating tableware for some of Australia’s acclaimed chefs and restaurants, including Tetsuya, Justin North (The Centennial and formerly Becasse), Neil Perry’s Rockpool (with Vittoria Coffee), Sean Presland of Sake Restaurant along with small boutique restaurants. Always diversifying and exploring, he has made large-scale environmental sculptures for private commissions and public works.
