About Sadhana Peterson

I have lived in the Blue Mountains in N.S.W., Australia for the past 40 years predominantly working with clay.

My work is always sculptural, often utilitarian and fired in electric, gas or wood kilns.

Textiles and plant fibre also play an important role in my work as I like to make plant fibre paper, basketry and wearable art.
 
I am currently teaching pottery to small groups in my home studio, Lilli Pilli Studio.
