The Glen Eira council Gallery is currently hosting an exhibition featuring ceramics from the Arthur Merric Boyd Pottery in Murrumbeena. The AMB Pottery was established in the 1940s by Arthur Merric Bloomfield Boyd (son of ceramicist Merric Boyd and grandson of artist Arthur Boyd) along with John Perceval and Peter Herbst. Other artists who contributed included Neil Douglas, Yvonne Boyd and Betty Burchell. Designs ranged from the functional – cups, plates, bowls – to the more decorative – vases, platters, jugs – often with beautiful details of native flora and fauna.

Lauraine Diggins Fine Art has a small selection of sought after ceramic works by members of the Boyd family. We welcome your inquiries.
