About Firebird Studios

Firebird Studios is owned and operated by Lynda Lehmann.

We are located in Burleigh Heads, on the wonderful Gold Coast of Australia. Lynda has been a studio potter for over 45 years, however, Firebird Studios has only been in operation since 2017, and only open to students since 2018.

Firebird Studios makes a wide range of functional and decorative pottery by hand.

Lynda is an avid maker and artist – creating in clay and multi media – most recently exhibiting in Swell Festival 2019 – winner People’s Choice Smalls Festival at dust Temple and Gold Coast Potters Overall Award for the marquette of our Swell sculpture!

We offer classes and workshops across many aspects of making and decorating in clay, both by hand on on the potter’s wheel, different firing methods and a vast array of advanced decorating techniques.

Our Community Clay days offer an economical space for potters to develop their work, while having access to teachers and interns to help. Other Community Clay  potters are also inspirational and are willing share their ideas and experience.

Firebird Studios also offers firing services for those who make off-site.

Community Clay is a term based membership that offers materials, firing and course discounts.

Lynda Lehmann

I draw my inspiration from nature and the martial arts. Creating the “impossible”, making things easily and effortlessly, and working in harmony with collaborators and clients. Ceramics has been my life since finishing high school and looking for a job in between school and university. The first job I saw and applied for was working in a pottery studio.  I stayed and became a master potter/production thrower. I eventually made it to university, but to study a Bachelors Degree in Ceramic Design instead of Fine Arts! My work is experimental and highly varied!


The Vision

Our vision is to bring the joy of making in clay to a broad variety of people. To develop creativity and the personal development that can occur through opening up the creative mind. To create a community of artists and artisans.
