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 40 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 – crating in clay and multi media – most recently exhibiting in Swell Festival 2019 – winner People’s Choice Smalls Festival and Gold Coast Potters Overall Award for the marquette of our Swell sculpture!

We offer classes and workshops across many aspects of making, decorating in clay. Different firing methods and a vast array of advanced decorating techniques.

Open Studio Classes offer economical space for potters to develop their work, while having access to teachers and interns to help. Other Open Studios Class potters are also inspirational and are willing share their ideas and experience.

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

We also have a membership level with monthly fees. Members can utilise Open Studio whenever they choose, and receive many other benefits and 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 arts and crafts to a broad variety of people. To experience the joy of creating with clay and mixed media. To develop creativity and the personal development that can occur through opening up the creative mind. To bring in leading talents in a broad variety of creative endeavours to inspire the local community. To create a community of artists and artisans.
