Barambah<>Cherbourg<>Art<>Craft showcases the creative diversity and historic production of Barambah Pottery, a commercial venture established in the Aboriginal community of Cherbourg in 1969. The exhibition features more than 100 individual pieces of significant pottery — from elaborate vases to glazed goblets — created before Barambah Pottery was abruptly closed in 1987.

Learn about the creation process, including the locally sourced clay from Barambah Creek, and discover personal stories through historical photographs, the newly acquired McConnell kick wheel plan designed for Cherbourg, and the pottery pieces themselves.

Co-curated with The Ration Shed Museum, a community-run historic cultural centre in the heart of Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire in the South Burnett Region, Queensland.
