Nob Creek Pottery is a lovely place to visit.

It is situated in the Byfield forest about half and hours drive north of Yeppoon. Yeppoon is a very quaint and picturesque seaside town on the central Queensland coast. One of it's offshore islands is Great Keppel Is. You may have heard of that!

Not many people get to see this, Steve actually working. Well there was someone with a camera nearby. Nob Creek Pottery was started about 23 years ago by Steve Bishopric and has been one of those wonderful dreams that has materialised over the years. Steve is an energetic and charismatic person who also happens to make beautiful wheel thrown ceramic pieces. Originally from Auckland, New Zealand, Steve loves his lifestyle of making pots, living in the bush and sailing whenever he gets the chance.

Nob Creek Pottery is one of the few craft galleries in Australia, which still prides itself on selling only Australian made work. Steve's specialty is wood firing. That is, producing ceramic pieces which are fired in a kiln using wood as the fuel. He uses a huge anagama kiln which he constructed about 15 years ago.Sue and Steve, stars of stage, screen and the front page of the capricorn Coast Mirror. Say no more!

Although he has been making hand basins for about 20 years his recent foray into the area of concept design for kitchens and bathrooms has him quite excited. "It seems to me that people are looking for something unique, something no one else has. People who have researched bathroom basins, fittings and accessories, then see our product, know that it is great value. Even though these are one-off, hand made items, we can still be really competitive," says Steve.
Sue McBurnie is Steve's partner who, like Steve, lives and works at Nob Creek Pottery. Sue has been involved with art all her life, either as a student, a teacher or a practicing artist. Sue's work is quite different to Steve's and takes the form of slab or coil built pieces. She particularly loves to make platters and sculptural pieces which draw their inspiration from the sea. Sue is constantly designing new concepts for the free form splashback tile murals.
