From these early beginnings Raewyn started producing a large range of domestic pottery which proved very popular in the 80s. At her Buckland Beach home and studio dozens of coffee mugs, jugs, casseroles and full pottery dinner sets were made, glazed and fired. In 1981 the demand for this work led to Raewyn joining The Rich Earth a local art and craft cooperative shop in Howick. With the early success of The Rich Earth, Raewyn started experimenting in more decorative and ornamental work using alternative firing methods like raku and pitfiring to produce distinctive and unique finishes on her original pots. This led to one of her pieces being chosen for the prestigious Fletcher Challenge Ceramic Exhibition.
With the advent of cheap import and the demise in popularity of hand made pottery in the 90s The Rich Earth closed down and Raewyn turned her attention to teaching pottery to both children and adults at Nathan Homestead, Edgewater College and also at Howick’s Uxbridge Art Centre where she is currently still teaching pottery. While working at the Uxbridge Art Centre Raewyn was inspired by the acrylic painting exhibitions on display there, so she joined the painting class in the mid 2000s. After a fairly tentative start her natural artistic talent came to the fore and she started experimenting with multiple colours and textures on bigger and brighter canvases putting her own unique creative style to her abstract impressionist paintings. Raewyn really enjoys the textual surfaces of both her pottery and painting and over the last few years has displayed and sold a number of pieces at numerous exhibitions in the Auckland area.
