Arcadia is a self-taught potter based from her home studio in Brunswick East.
While working for several years travelling around Australia in a sales role, Arcadia spent her downtime learning about ceramics, taking courses, buying equipment and experimenting.
Her home now boasts a wheel, drying room and a kiln.
Scott has a keen eye for what her customers need and runs her studio to fill those needs.
The Boroughs commissioned Arcadia to produce the 'Neighbourhood' reusable ceramic coffee cup. We're in a neighbourhood that has led the growth in artisan coffee and we wanted a cup that compliments the quality of the beverage produced. Travel cups as Arcadia refers to them have become a big part of her studio output, and an important collaborative item in our collection.
Arcadia’s work features, strong use of texture and colour and unique forms that are thoroughly functional.
