John Parker



Bio: John Parker is one of New Zealand’s most consistently innovative potters, always seeking fresh ways to push the boundaries of clay production. He takes inspiration from art-house cinema, Wagner, Beatles albums, commercial potteries such as Crown Lynn and Wedgwood, and even the manufacture of power pole insulators. 

Parker lives and works in the hills of Waiatarua. He is also well known as an award-winning theatre and exhibition designer, film reviewer and opera fan. Among the many honours he has received, John was made a New Zealand Arts Foundation Laureate in 2010. He is represented by Masterworks Gallery, Auckland; AVID Gallery, Wellington; Milford Galleries, Dunedin and Queenstown; Piece Gallery, Matakana; and Form Gallery, Christchurch.
