Nigel Perera

Nigel Perera is a Cairns based artist with a love for his craft. The Sri- Lankan born artist studied pottery at Cairns TAFE and within his first year was taking on contracts as a production potter. Throughout his career, Nigel has worked on a number of projects and jobs creating large scale thrown pots for island resorts, a niche that combined his love for the artform with his location, Tropical North Queensland. As Nigel progresses his skills on the wheel, he enjoys experimenting with new techniques, Drawing on ancient traditions of wheel thrown pottery from Nigel’s country of birth, Sri Lanka Nigel brings the ancient artform into a contemporary context  from the wheel through to the kiln.
