Lecturer Profile

Remy Pajaczkowski-Russell is an artist working on Gadigal land where he produces a range of domestic ware as well as pieces for exhibition. His practice concerns itself with the ethical production of utilitarian pottery by repurposing waste materials into glazes and clays. Remy studied ceramics at National Art School. After completing his degree NAS in 2016, he undertook an apprenticeship in a traditional woodfired pottery studio in La Borne, France. It was here that he developed his passion for woodfired ceramics and expressive slip decoration. Since then, he has worked in commercial ceramic studios and community-run studios, furthering his understanding of ceramics across the craft and industrial production industries. His work is held in public and private collections including Broken Hill Regional Gallery, Cement Fondu, and in the restaurants Bush in Redfern and Karrikin in Yamba.
