Catch The Sydney Teapot Show at Kerrie Lowe Gallery, a fixture at the North end of King Street in Newtown since the early 90s, specialising in ceramics.

“We are delighted to once again present the Teapot Show. It’s a great opportunity for the ceramics community to exercise their imagination, creativity and skills to form an object that will gladden the heart of tea drinkers,” Kerrie said.
