Dawn Olson

Dawn Olson took her first ceramics class at Medalta in 2010 and has been hooked ever since.  Her main focus is on functional pieces that add beauty to everyday life. 

Her main inspirations are nature and travel,  being especially drawn to Moorish patterns and shapes. 

One of the best parts of doing pottery, is the chance to spend time with my mother, potter Dixie Baker.

When she is not doing pottery, she can be found working as an Occupational Therapist, travelling the world with her husband, Rob, or doing one of a wide variety of hobbies including running, tennis, yoga, Spanish and volleyball.
