Bronwynne Cornish is a ceramicist, sculptor and art educator. A NZ based artist, she is held in all the major institutions and private collections in NZ. Her career spans over 40 years. Since beginning to work with clay in 1968, she has developed a practice which is largely sculptural, including many installations and large works. Her work looks at the crossover between animals and people, placing those characteristics in fine balance and emphasising the wildness that we have lost in our lives today. She notes, “I make work that I hope will create a certain atmosphere, ring a long-lost bell, and help people create their own mythologies”.
In 2014-2015, Bronwynne had a major retrospective titled "Mudlark: Bronwynne Cornish, Ceramics 1982–2013" which tour the country
