About Me

ABOUT

Inspired by the natural landscape.

I have a fascination with our ever-changing environment and a deep passion to create.

Particularly the extraordinary and ever-changing world of the wetlands.

Each of my vessels tells the story of nature.

Organic in shape. Quiet in manner.

They evoke the beauty and complexity of our fragile ecosystem.


“Megan Puls is one of Australia’s more successful ceramic artists. Her work has featured in art competitions, festivals, magazines, books and is in collections internationally. She is known for her ability to throw and sculpt very large works.”
