It all started way back in 1976 at High school, term 3 form 1.
I missed out on wood work as an art subject which I enjoyed doing for terms 1 and 2.
Oh what now and I actually said to my self "I'll muck around in clay" and 39 years later I am still mucking around in clay.



INTRODUCING DAVID C LYONS

David first became interested in ceramics at High School in 1976, by the time he commenced his Degree in Fine Art at Victoria College in 1982, he had successfully participated in many Art and Craft Shows throughout Melbourne.

Harry Memmott – Then Head of Victoria College (Ceramic Arts), when shown a sample of David’s work accepted David to the course immediately he gained the necessary entrance qualifications to the College.

David completed his degree in 1984 and was appointed Artist in Residence the following year. During this period he was selected by the Victorian Government to display his work at Miriam Galleries Malvern for the official YEAR OF THE YOUTH EXHIBITION.

In 1985, commenced business as Upper Yarra Potteries, producing Australiana vases with gumnut motifs.

In 1987, on relocating to Harcourt 28 kilometers from Bendigo, he registered a business in the name of Harcourt Pottery and continued to produce Earthenware Australiana gumnut vases.

From 1988 until 1993, David was invited to work both part and full time at Bendigo Pottery where he produced vases, dip trays and platters, some of which bear his signature together with the Bendigo Pottery stamp. At that time, no employee other than Alex Gill had been allowed place his signature on any piece of Bendigo Pottery.

Over the period from 1993 until 2004 David concentrated his efforts to making Terracotta-ware - Bird Feeders, Planters, Planter Feet and Garden novelties. During this period many experiments and glazing tests were undertaken and special Australiana-ware orders were fulfilled.

During 2004, David once again commenced serious creation of Australiana-ware.
