A visit to the magical studio (and home) of Daylesford potter Minna Graham.






Minna's beautiful organic forms are inspired by the natural beauty of the local area and the land on which she lives. Her thrown and carved forms are sculptural and textural, inviting the touch and drawing you in, losing you in their detail. They are beautiful to hold, a small thing of true beauty- simple, but complex at all once. Her work weaves a beautiful story, of history & tradition, ancient but somehow modern in its telling. 










A peek around intriguing studio corners reveals treasures with stories of their own. There's a giant zebra (yes its for sale, yes you should put it in your bedroom) & an even more giant cactus! Every studio needs a giant cactus!




 Its a home & studio bursting with creativity. Tucked away in a hidden valley, the house itself is like a sculpture in its own right- hand built by Minna's partner (who is also responsible for the zebra and cactus awesomeness). In its entirety a home and studio full of magic, creativity and life.






I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the world of Daylesford artist Minna Graham. I don't know about you but I think the homes & workspaces of creative types are fascinating, beautiful and always interesting! Stay tuned for more studio visits in the near future.
