Panogana Pottery is Tasmania’s largest production pottery workshop at Dodges Ferry, southeast Tasmania. Dodges Ferry is a coastal township, forty minutes’ drive from Hobart (46 kilometres).
Panogana Pottery produces distinctive, handmade stoneware. Established by potter Bill Thomas in 1978, the pottery specialises in oven-to-table stoneware, including custom designed dinner settings. Decorative and functional pottery is produced, including vases, oil lamps and candle holders, platters and cookware. The pieces reflect the style of English country pots with rich colours and glazes influenced by the local coastal environment.
Panogana is derived from a Tasmanian Aboriginal word meaning ‘clay’ or ‘whitish mud’. The Panogana Pottery workshop is close to Park Beach and open to visitors each weekday and weekends by appointment.Visit Website
