Damon Moon is a second-generation potter based in South Australia. He first started working with clay at the age of fifteen with his father, the well-known Australian potter Milton Moon A.M. Over the past four decades he has worked in many capacities within the arts, as a writer and researcher, curator, teacher and maker, but ceramics has been a constant presence in his life. In 2006 he was awarded a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of South Australia for his thesis examining aspects of Australian ceramic history and he is recognised as one of the preeminent writers and commentators in the field. He is currently Creative Director of Ceramics at JamFactory Contemporary Craft and Design in Adelaide, South Australia. Damon lives with his wife, the baroque violinist Lucinda Moon, in Willunga in the Southern Vales wine region, where he maintains a studio and showroom in their 1850s heritage listed house.
