Visit the Hermannsburg Potters to see their renowned hand-built terracotta pots that are decorated with vibrant sculpted animals, landscapes, and bush tucker.
The Hermannsburg Potters enjoy a national and international reputation for their unique pots that are decorated with ceramic underglazes. The lids support colourful sculpted animals, birds and bush tucker. The belly of the pot is painted with the striking landscapes of the area. The Hermannsburg Potters are also painting their designs onto canvas, with eye-catching results.
You can see and purchase the work of the Hermannsburg Potters at the Kata Anga Tea Rooms and the Namatjira Gallery in the Hermannsburg Heritage Precinct. There is also a display at the Araluen Centre in Alice Springs.
Visiting the Hermannsburg Potters is by appointment only.
