About the tutor

Victoria De Aboitiz

Hi, I am Victoria! I studied Ceramics in various studios in South America. I've been teaching at NSCC since 2022. My background influences my understanding of ceramics by highlighting the conception of community and cultural ceramic traditions in the making and guides me to work with local materials extracted by myself. I'm constantly learning from all environments, exploring techniques and technologies in my studio in Sydney's Inner West. Bridging different worlds is a special place for my work to occur in.
