Clem Ainslie – a long lost Australian Potter.

Discovered in 2013, this talented Australian potter was neglected by the publications up to this date. She was a star pupil of Harvey of Brisbane, and her work is known amongst collectors, but her story was untold. Moorabool exhibited the family collection of her works, and published a book on her pieces, bringing to light a fascinating tale of a young Australian lady potter in the 1920’s.
