Hermannsburg Potters Art Centre Manager
Tue February 11 @ 8:00 am - Fri March 13 @ 5:00 pm
The Hermannsburg Potters have developed into a renowned brand and have works held in public and private collections, both nationally and internationally. In this time, their art practice has expanded to include mosaic, ceramic relief murals, acrylic landscape paintings, sgraffito pottery and slab-built sculpture. Despite this diversity they continue to remain recognised for their niche product: terracotta sculptured pottery, decorated with pictorial under glazing, which tell stories of their country and culture.
The Hermannsburg Potters push the boundaries of their imagination and skill through their iconic and vibrant practice. Their pottery is not utilitarian but is viewed as a vehicle for self-expression to depict family life, ancestor totems and post-contact influences. Their closely observed pots exhibit an intriguing sense of humour, an element of gentleness and the sure knowledge and pride for the Western Aranda place in the world.

The salary package is $65,000 – $75,000 per annum (cash component). In addition, other competitive allowance and entitlements are also offered and will be discussed at the interview.
