Arthur Merric Boyd

Arthur Merric Boyd (1920-1999) learnt to make pots in the family home at Murrumbeena, Victoria. In 1944, with John Perceval and Peter Herbst, he bought Hatton Beck's studio and renamed it the Arthur Merric Boyd (AMB) Pottery, with the aim of supporting a life of painting and study. Outputs of the pottery were mainly simple forms decorated in bright colours, but Boyd also experimented with figurative and landscape painting on plates, larger bowls and tiles. He also made a series of terracotta sculptures. From 1948, he had less to do with the pottery, in 1955 he ended his partnership, and in 1958 the pottery closed and Boyd took his family to England. Throughout the rest of his career as an artist, Boyd returned at intervals to ceramic painting and sculpture, making a large series of platters at Bundanon on the Shoalhaven when he moved there in 1981. Boyd's own ceramic works or collaborations are incised 'Boyd' or 'Arthur Merric Boyd' and the Arthur Merric Boyd Pottery items 'AMB'.
