Dean has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from RMIT and has over 25 years experience in the ceramics and education industries. He is the founder of The Wheelhouse Ceramic Studio in South Melbourne Australia, and enjoys creating one off bespoke objects and sharing his love of clay with others.
Dean’s specialty lies in wheel thrown functional objects using high fired porcelaneous stoneware clay. He aims to create one off functional pieces to enjoy and enhance everyday life.
The philosophy behind Dean's work is about familiar, and apparently simple, objects that quietly carry a complexity of origin and ideas - reflections of customary activities, celebrations and domestic use.
