Ceramicist Gus Clutterbuck embraces risk and experimentation when working in the studio. Preferring to keep things fresh and interesting, accidental outcomes become new starting points for his work inspired by direct experiences of place, personal history and the potential of found and discarded objects to tell stories about our culture.

Clutterbuck exhibits both nationally and internationally, most recently presenting work in the solo exhibition Shards at MEOU Art in Shanghai. His work is held in the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia, and in 2011 he was awarded a Special Prize for his work Plastic Geology (2011) in the Gyeonggi International Ceramix Biennale, Icheon, South Korea (2011). In 2014 he was the recipient of an Aisalink Residency, undertaking a self-initiated residency at the Pottery Workshop in Jingdezhen, China. He also has experience working in community arts and education, including with remote aboriginal communities in South Australia.
