Isobel Art Pottery

Isobel Art Pottery was a pottery in Croydon, Melbourne, active from the early 1960s to the mid 1970s. It produced slip cast wares, many hand painted with flowers, fruit or Aboriginal motifs by Helen Ilich (1914-1996), a Croatian-born self-taught artist who had migrated to Melbourne with her two children in 1955 to join her husband there. Ilich worked as a decorator for Ellis Ceramics and Guy Boyd Pottery as well as for Isobel. In the late 1960s, she joined the Heidelberg District Artists' Society and taught painting from her home, where she also completed a range of still lives, landscapes and portraits. An entry in Geoff Ford's Encyclopedia of Australian Potters' Marks attributes the establishment of Isobel Art Pottery to a Hilda Ilich. It is still not clear whether Hilda was a relation of Helen's, whether Helen herself set up the pottery or whether it was owned by an independent operator. Works from this pottery may be signed 'H. Ilich', 'Isobel' or 'Isobel Australia'.
