After studying at Chisholm Institute of Technology, Victoria in the early 1980s, Phil Elson received an Australia Council Crafts Board Grant to train with Vic Greenway at Broomhill Pottery at Upper Beaconsfield, Victoria. This was followed by further training experience with Richard Brooks at Boorlie Pottery, Sydney. It was during that time, says Phil, that he became strongly influenced by the traditional English and Japanese approaches to making pots. These influences continue to be evident in his work while the shapes and glazes fit perfectly into today’s domestic environment.

Of his work, Phil says, “It is important to me that a pot feels good to use, pleasing to the lips when drinking, pleasing to hold and pleasing to look at on the shelf over a period of time.”
