Jeff Mincham has produced an extensive and varied corpus of work over his long artistic career. With a sound training in the arts and in ceramics under acknowledged Australia Masters, Les Blakebrough and Milton Moon, his career has focussed on evolving the expressive range of Ceramics as an art form, which has had a significant impact on Australian ceramics.

The natural world and landscape themes have dominated his output over the past 25 years however there have been other significant series that have come into play along the way, often reflecting a spontaneous evolution of his expressive range.
