Looking For Clay

Our Culture

Added by Munupi Arts

Description Robert Puruntatameri is a most talented and devoted potter. Robert inherited his skills from his well known father, Aboriginal potter Eddie Puruntatameri, who founded both the Tiwi Pottery on Bathurst Island and Pirlangimpi Pottery at Munupi Arts at Melville Island.
In the middle of 2013 Robert collaborated with Yuri Wiedenhofer, an old style potter from the hills of Canberra. For three weeks they gathered local earth materials and took them back into the studio to turn into something you can hold in your hands everyday.
