Little Betty Ceramics
NZ ceramic figurines

Little Betty is New Zealand artist and maker Debra Powell.

I've been working with paint and clay for over twenty years, since studying art and design in the 1980s. My ceramic work is eclectic in range and medium and includes jewellery in porcelain, wheel-thrown domesticware in earthenware, and sculptures in terracotta, stoneware, and paperclay.

My sculptural work, in particular, is informed by a decade spent deep in the world of academia. My forays into New Zealand cultural history, gender studies, and criminology ended in a doctorate in crime history and homicide studies. Underpinning all that research was a fascination with narrative and the significance of stories in the way we experience and interpret the things around us. My recent clay work continues along this narrative theme. Though a whole lot lighter in content, it explores the stories that give meaning to our strange and fabulous lives.

The works listed below are a small sample of those currently on display in the gallery.
