Lex Dickson (1951-2008)
Born as Alexander William Dickson, on New Zealand’s North Island, Lex Dickson grew up with abiding interest in Maori artifacts. He had his first encounter with ceramics by helping a friend’s mother whom was a conventional potter.
Lex Dickson trained and worked full-time at Booralie and Kinka Potteries, Terry Hills, NSW, before taking up a grant to further his training in Japan. Returning to Australia in 1984 Lex established his own studio. Since then he has exhibited continuously throughout Australia and overseas as well as running numerous workshops.
His work has been purchased by the Australian Prime Minister's Department, the NSW Tourist Commission, the Commonwealth Bank and the Treasury Department. It can also be seen daily in Azuma Restaurant when used to serve Azuma’s authentic Japanese cuisine. He is represented in Sydney by Robin Gibson Gallery in Darlinghurst.
Tragically Lex Dickson passed away suddenly in early 2008. We will mourn the loss of one of our finest artists, however his legacy continues on in his beautiful pottery.
