About Deb Taylor

English born Deb Taylor has worked as a studio potter and ceramic artist for 25 years. Based in Sydney, she is a former student of the National Art School and spent a decade as Artist-In-Residence at the University of New South Wales.

Throughout her time at UNSW Deb did voluntary work for the Social Workers at The Royal Womens' Hospital in Randwick. This involved firing ceramic tiles with foot and hand impressions of tiny infants who had died preterm, or who were stillborn. The tiles were a gift to parents as a lasting memorial of the birth, their infant and their tragic loss.

This experience helped Deb to acknowledge the importance of grief and loss. It inspired her to begin making exquisitely formed handmade porcelain cremation urns for families whose infants, loved ones, or in some cases greatly beloved pets had died.

From 2007-2013 Deb was part of the City East Community College teaching programme introducing students to the wonders and potential of the thrown form.

Deb runs private classes and her existing ceramic business www.littlewhitedish.com.au from the claypool studio in Botany.
