Your Teacher

Cathy Spencer has been featured on The Great South East, Queensland Weekender, Better Homes and Gardens, The Morning Show and many others. She has also taken Pottery Tours to Tuscany and the Greek Islands to teach pottery in the most amazing settings at these breathtaking destinations.

She has been a potter for 38 years and teaching pottery in her Maleny Studios for over 15 years. She was a founding member of the Peace of Green Gallery in Maleny some 29 years ago, where she still sells her work.

Clay has always been therapeutic for Cathy. When she starts making something, a story starts to form in her thoughts, usually involving people she knows, nature or animals. “These stories and thoughts have given my pieces a certain personality and character“.
