Laurie Steer


Laurie Steer is a potter based in Mount Maunganui. Steer’s work questions and experiments with ceramics production and tradition. While maintaining strong links to ancient pottery techniques and aesthetics his vessels often sprout strange protuberances or spikes, assuming fantastical forms suspended somewhere between fine art ceramics and craft pottery. Steer’s work has been exhibited throughout New Zealand and Australia, and he produces an ever changing line of extraordinarily popular pseudo domestic ware. 


Steer holds a Masters of Art & Design from Auckland University of Technology and is also a Director with the Driving Creek Arts and Conservation Trust.
