Firebird Studios

We are primarily a teaching studio. We offer all levels of pottery instruction and many of our students go on to become professional potters.  

About Firebird Studios

Firebird Studios is possibily one of the busiest (privately owned) teaching studios in Queensland, maybe even Australia!

We are located in Burleigh Heads, on the wonderful Gold Coast of Australia. Established by Lynda Lehmann, who has been a studio potter for over 45 years, Firebird Studios has been open to students since late 2018.

The studio has rapidly developed with the help of interns, who have become teachers, and a full time employed technical assistant.

We teach every aspect of pottery from beginner workshops through to advanced courses in glaze chemisty, kilns, firing, studio operations, selling online and more! 

We pride ourselves on the quality of work even our beginner students make, let alone the wonderfully creative and talented students who are now selling their work!

At Firebird Stduios we have also established a friendly, happy, creative and talented Community Clay group that support and motivate each other in the unlimited Community Clay times!

Lynda Lehmann

Owner/Operator Firebird Studios

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 to study a Bachelors Degree in Ceramic Design. My work is experimental and highly varied!

I manufacture production work under the Phoenix By Fire brand – wholesaling for cafes, restuarants, gift and homewares.

 Large scale installations and artwork are in my own name!

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.
