Whether one of its 60 members makes a plate, vase, teacup or piece of jewellery, each is handpainted to create traditional and modern designs.

Association president Lilian Beer said it could take anywhere from one to five hours to handcraft an item.

“It could take three or four firings (painting and then fired) for each, depending on the subject,” Mrs Beer of Kareela said.

Fifteen members will display their work at the Porcelain on Fire exhibit at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Arts Centre on April 5-18.

“Our aim is to provide an insight into our beautiful artform and to display the many facets of porcelain art in Australia today,” Mrs Beer said.

Association members demonstrate and share their skills, techniques and ideas on the second Saturday of each month at the Arts Theatre Cronulla.
