Eric Juckert

Australian Ceramic Artist

Eric Juckert (1918-2004 ) started potting with Una Deerbon at her studio in Melbourne, Victoria, in 1936, then set up his own business at his parent’s home in Balaclava, making a range of pottery sold by Myers and David Jones under the name Jacqueline. In 1949, he moved to nearby Caulfield and, in 1954, to Riddell, near Gisborne, north of Melbourne. He went to England for a time, then in 1959 set up a studio on Phillip Island south of Melbourne and continued working there until 1992. These dates are from the Rameking and differ from the dates in Geoff Ford’s Encyclopedia of Australian Potters’ Marks. Works are incised ‘Juckert’ or ‘Eric Juckert’.
