Connie Lichti began learning pottery when she was 45 years old. She studied ceramics at Box Hill Institute of TAFE in Melbourne and at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra. Over the years she has fine tuned her craft and skill to design and make original and functional wheel thrown pottery.
After 20 years of making, Connie has opened her own pottery school 'The Pottery Learning Centre' based in Derrimut, Melbourne to teach aspiring potters her craft and techniques.
She has taught previously at both the Carlton Arts Centre and Northcote Pottery Supplies and is excited to be branching out on her own as a teacher.
Selling her unique homewares online and at markets in Melbourne, Connie Lichti Ceramics continues to experiment with new ranges of products that are playful, beautiful and inspiring.
In 2018 Connie is experimenting with her crystalline glaze porcelain range in bowls, cups and vases which is a temperamental and often difficult process to work with. Her popular navy and gold printed porcelain series will also be extended across different products like cups and vases.
