Shelley Courtney Open Studio

Tamborine Mountain Arts Trail 2024 presents the open studio of Shelley Courtney. At Shelley’s studio, you can check out her working space, the environment that inspires her lighting and ceramics, as well as the opportunity to purchase her works. Feel free to stop in to chat!

Shelley is a self taught ceramic artist whose work gathers inspiration from the beautiful surroundings on Tamborine Mountain and the wider Australian landscape. Working out of her small studio, she prides herself on knowing that everything has had a touch point, from conception all the way down to the laser ply tag to show it’s complete. The studio name is a reflection of the joy in the little things (or details) that are so often overlooked in nature as we rush around with our busy lives.

Whilst creating pieces of functional ware with various techniques, she began to incorporate illumination into her artistic journey. By looking at how to enhance an organic and natural shape, she works with the elements of copper, timber, fabric and cement, crafting lamps that symbolize strength emerging from chaos. Some of the newer pieces reflects the rebuilding and transformation, as she blend different mediums to convey the complex emotions of recovery after the 2023 tornado.
