Rhondda has been involved with art and craft for most of her life. She was introduced to ceramics, pottery and sculpture through her Mum back in the 60s, and it has been an ongoing learning experience every since. Rhondda joined the NSCG in 2004.
After completing her nursing training, she travelled extensively and remained overseas for 22 years, marrying and having two children. While there, Rhondda pursued her love of pottery, attending many clay workshops. She also attended the Haliburton School of Fine Art learning production throwing (a complete and utter failure), and sculpture.
Rhondda also studied stained glass, at this time concentrating on arctic themes but gave this and all other activities up to concentrate on clay.
About 9 years ago she had the opportunity to attend a glass slumping and decorating workshop and hasn’t touched clay since. She finds working with glass a most interesting and challenging medium to work with and explore. Even kiln accidents can be spectacular!
Always wanting to try new ideas and mediums, her latest challenge and love is lampworking to make glass beads.
