Our Story

 Introducing Ian (Ox)  McColl. 

 For as long as I can remember I   have made objects out of clay.   Small cars and racing tracks in   the clay around the dams on my   family’s farm, at school, and then   once shown how to use the   pottery  wheel – It completely   hooked me in!  It has been a   lifelong journey.

 I have explored many   opportunities within the pottery   world. From building a wide variety of kilns, to working with potters both in Australia and overseas. Many years have been spent honing the skills needed to be able to produce high quality pottery.

From the Studio in Darley, Oxart produces a wide variety of pottery products and operates a vibrant pottery school. The range of functional pottery items produced is designed to be used on a daily basis, mugs, plates, platters and teapots are just a few of the items.  All products from OXART pottery are dishwasher, microwave and oven proof.

 Oxart @ Taradale.


Oxart has now fully realized the vision of a single site, multi use pottery hub in Taradale, which is located on the Old Calder Hwy - 10 mins north of Kyneton and just 5 mins onward from Malmsbury. It is an old 70's Roadhouse that oozes character and is our base for a variety of small group workshops and regular lessons. We are currently in the planning stages of sculpture, painting, printmaking and drawing workshops.

We have a gallery/shop that is open on weekends and some weekdays where you can purchase beautiful Oxart pots as they come out of the kiln.  Our lessons are in full swing and often booked out, with the availability of Adult, Teen and Kids Classes.  You can book by visiting the 'Pottery Classes' page above.

It is an exciting and continually evolving venture, which we are love sharing with everyone in the near future.  Please pop in and grab a coffee and say hello!
