All Pãn Pottery pots are hand made by Angus McDiarmid using a traditional wood fire kiln, kick wheel and hand dug local clays. Each pot is completely unique as the clay and firing decide the finish of the pot.
He is inspired by the creation of functional and durable pots from local materials. Angus was taught early on that life and pottery are one, there is no distinction. He believes the process and intention that goes into the work is just as important as the final result.
He also draws inspiration from his travels. In 2011 he cycled from Patagonia, Argentina to Ecuador. He was on his bicycle for ten months and spent much of that time in the Andes. Along the way he was invited into many homes and experienced the joy and beauty of living closely with traditional craft and pottery. Later, his travels took him and his wife to India where he studied in a traditional pottery studio on the foothills of the Himalayas. He now works from his home studio on the shores of Lake Weyba, Noosa Heads, Queensland.
