For over forty years Arthur and Carol Rosser created work from their secluded rainforest pottery in the Mackay hinterland, near the township of Eungella, Queensland. Fuelled by an enduring fascination with the interplay between clay, wood and fire, the Rosser’s working career saw them quietly gain national recognition for their dedication to the production of woodfired pottery.

Bringing together a comprehensive body of work from the 70s – late 2010s, Fire and Ash celebrates the artists’ expansive mastery of the medium. Highlighting their considered approach to land care, development of unique ash glazes and long wood firings, Artspace Mackay celebrates these prolific potters’ careers as part of the gallery’s twentieth birthday fete.
