Crickhollow Pottery

In the 1960s Rynne started potting while training as a teacher in New Zealand. Seeking more formal qualifications, he completed a three-year degree at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and subse­quently taught pottery at tertiary level in Launceston for 24 years. Concurrently, he made and sold pottery under the name Crickhollow Pottery. The initial focus was textured functional pots, which developed into visu­ally textured surfaces with glaze-on-glaze decoration and macro-crystalline glaze effects.

His work may be found in national, international and private collections.

Rynne is currently edging into sculpture, having recently built a bronze foundry.
