DocumentsJohn Eagle 2021 Catalogue
John Eagle is an Ararat-based potter, renowned in Australia and internationally for his striking copper red glaze.
A graduate of RMIT, Eagle has worked with clay for over 40 years to develop his signature range of glazes that give the impression of a moving fluid surface.
He enjoyed early success in his career when selected for inclusion in the National Gallery of Victoria exhibition, Crafts Victoria ‘75. Eagle’s work has been recognised for a number of prestigious art prizes including, the National Bicentennial Art-Craft Award for Functional Pottery and ‘Craft Mark’ accreditation.
Eagle’s association with Ararat began following his artist residency at Marian College in 2004, which evolved into a dedicated teaching career with the school and the wider community.
