It seems the regional art community loves Antonia Throsby's work as much as we do. She won the 2012 Bowral Sculpture Prize, was selected in the 2012 Outback Open Art Prize at Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery and was named one of five Emerging Artists at Sidney Myer Fund Australian Ceramics Awards. Antonia has also just been awarded the Trudie Alfred Scholarship in Australia.
Antonia began working with clay ten years ago when she did her first ceramics course at Goulbourn TAFE. She now creates her one-of-a-kind pendant lampshades from her home studio, 3km outside of Braidwood. Her products are slip caste in terracotta and a white gloss glaze is used for contrast. Her pendant lights are beautifully translucent when lit.
When Antonia is not busy crafting her masterpieces, chances are she's spending time with her talented husband, artist Jonothon Throsby, who is also an artist, and her nine-year-old son, or tending to her garden or the family's animals which include chooks, dogs, budgies, a rabbit and one lone goldfish. A busy woman indeed!
