dawn oakford
Dawn’s career began at Launceston College where she taught ceramics & art theory to grades 11 & 12. After returning to the Tasmanian School of Art and completing her Master of Fine Arts degree, Dawn taught ceramics at the University of Tasmania & then TAFE Tasmania. During this time, she also established a successful arts practice, producing her well-known zoomorphic tableware range that references Australian birds and mammals, “signature” teapots and sculptural works. Her ceramics have featured in several touring shows, solo exhibitions and some forty group exhibitions throughout Australia and overseas. Images of her highly original work have also been included in Handmade in Tasmania and three of the Lark Book series (USA). Dawn’s delightful and intriguing ceramics have been acquired by both public and private collections around the world.
