Where I started
Debra McLaren is a Potter and Ceramic Artist from Perup WA.
Her studio is on a small farm where she sells functional giftware and runs beginner workshops for Adults and Children while also running a local
Truffle Dog Tour business.
Debra started her clay journey back in 1997 where she completed 2
certificate courses in Ceramics at South Metropolitan Tafe.
While raising her 4 children, building a small farm and establishing her Travel and Tourism career she has also attended many classes and workshops learning from several Australian ceramic artists. Debra has also travelled overseas where she has attended Ceramic workshops and has also been inspired from visiting International Ceramic artists at many local and interstate events.
Recently Debra has been refining her skills under a successful and
well-known WA Ceramic artist at North Metropolitan Tafe and was an exhibitor in the Sliced Earth Exhibition and Nectare Exhibition.
Debra is now taking a more serious approach to her art and she encourages you to touch and feel the earthy tactile connection of
artist and medium.
"Clay is my outlet, my therapy and a way for me to create beautiful things
for others to enjoy..
Buying a piece of my art is buying a piece of my heart"
