Born in Ringwood, Victoria, Anthony studied fine arts at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and also at the Regent Street Polytechnic in London. Since establishing a studio Upwey, Victoria in 1960 Anthony has worked continually as a studio potter. Anthony reloctaed to Marcus Beach on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in 1988. He has established in various galleries and group shows. Anthony is reprsented in private collections throughout Australia and overseas including the Museum of Modern Craft in New York, USA.
Anthony has become reknowned for his uniquley, original presentation lidded dishes- he produces exquisetly glazed lides, that are sculptured and then painstakingly brush painted before final firings. The Base is normally turned on a pottery wheel and fired in one basic colour- but the lid is formed using a series of methods to produce a unique work of art. The pieces are food safe and fabulous as presentation pieces and although fired at extremely high temperatures we do not recommend using them for cooking.
