Eric’s first advertized sales were at the height of the great depression at the 4th Floor, Bank Chambers (Centreway Arcade) 255 Collins Street Melbourne on the 8th of December 1937. In 1939 at the start of the Second-World-War Eric, along with Charles joined the RAAF as an Aircraftsman, he was discharged in 1946. (To be accurate, Charles joined the Army in March 1940 then transferred to the Airforce in 1942.) Following a number of issues with the then Commonwealth Department of Employment and National Service, the pottery closed in 1950.
He was a magnet for other potters and was always available for advice. People traveled from around the world to work with him. A selection of his work showing the wide variety of styles he produced can be seen at the local museum in Cowes, Victoria. They are only open between 10 and 12 am on a Thursday, but you can still sneak a peek through the front window.
A beachfront reserve adjascent his home at Ventnor was named in his honour. The Bass Shire Council said that “Short of naming a major public building or the like after him, it is hard to imagine a more appropriate recognition of Mr Juckert’s contribution to Phillip Island.” Don't look for anything there with his name on it because you won't find anything. Charles Wilton also worked on Phillip Island from the early 1970s until his death in 2001.
