Flora Christeller was one of Wellington’s pioneer potters who came together as a group during the 1960’s to 1980’s and bcame part of an international focus on craft as integral to daily life. With a career spanning over 40 years. Flora Christeller studied fine art at Canterbury School of Art during the early 1940’s alongside Yvonne Rust who became a lifelong friend. Flora was part of a group of pioneers interested in pottery and without a specialist ceramics college it was a time when exploring the medium was exciting and the results were shared freely, both nationally and internationally. Flora learnt the fundamentals from Helen Mason and Mirek Smisek. Flora’s career had many highlights including being a foundation member of the New Zealand Society of Potters, twice being a president of the Wellington Potters Association, establishing The Potters Shop in 1984 and completing a large wall mural for the Community and War Memorial Hall in Pauatahanui.
