History and Use: Edward Deemera, the maker of this ceramic pot, is a Gunggandji man who was born and raised in the Yarrabah community. He worked at the pottery studio in 1972 as an apprentice learning to mix and recycle clay. He gradually became familiar with the process of working in and maintaining a pottery work shop. Beginning with hand built individual pieces, he moved onto the pottery wheel where he mastered the art of production line work, turning out functional ware i.e. mugs, bowls wine goblets and plates for retail outlets. Deemera has participated in exhibitions and workshops and continues to practice as a professional potter at the Yarrabah Guyala Pottery studio.
