Born in England in 1944, Rynne Tanton, of Crickhollow Pottery, started his career as an industrial chemist doing metallurgical analysis.

Rynne moved to New Zealand in his early twenties and attended teachers college in Hamilton where he undertook many different extracurricular activities including poetry, music, dance and ceramics. Near the end of his training he was invited to become a ceramics teacher and that was the beginning of 26 years of teaching.

Rynne later moved to Melbourne to study a Diploma of Art at RMIT. On completion of his Diploma, Rynne moved to Launceston Tasmania where he took up a lecturing position at the University of Tasmania.

Rynne started producing pottery from his Underwood property near Launceston. His main inspiration is nature and the way that it produces tactile objects. Rynne invented and/or developed a large range of techniques that up until that time had only been indirectly used. Two of these techniques are heat crackling and macro crystalline glazes.

Aspects stocks Crickhollow Pottery's crackle bowls, dishes and plates, Australian landscape plates and macro crystalline vases.

Made in Australia.
