About My Studio and Showroom …
I came to my work in clay through meditation. My meditation teacher at the time suggested I make 100 vases, and even though he didn’t specifically say I make them out of clay, I searched out a pottery teacher — and then I was hooked from the first lesson! The 100 vases turned into 100 mugs, and then the exercise went onto 100 bowls, 100 plates, 100 teapots, and so on. I think I’ve probably made about 5000 teapots by now, and I’m still not tired of working in clay!
All of my work is ‘one of a kind’ in its true sense, and reflects all of the phases I’ve been through — in clay, on paper, and in life. I actually started making Art back in the 90’s, and had my work on paper (watercolour and ink) shown at York University, various galleries in Toronto, Port Hope, Cobourg and Colborne — before I became enamoured of clay! I have continued to do both, even though my work in clay has taken the lead for a few years.
A history of my work and some of my favourite pieces can be seen in the Gallery on this site, and I will be adding a site for my work on paper in the near future. I will also be offering some classes and workshops in “Art for Non-artists”. Paint and paper are so much lighter than boxes of clay!
Hope to see you all soon!
