 Pottery Artist

"I first fell in love with clay when I was living and studying in a Quaker community in Pennsylvania.  Although pottery was not central to our studies, the studio was open 24 hours a day, and I spent every available minute there, completely transfixed. Even though that was in the mid 1980s, the Quaker principles of simplicity and functionality still inform my work and I concentrate on simple forms and glazes, and strive to make pots that are carefully crafted, work well, and are pleasing to look at and hold.  I consider myself a self-taught potter, and have learned from many instructors through courses and weekend workshops.  Through that process I have learned that every instructor has something to offer, that there are many different techniques available to potters, and that in the end you develop a process and a style that is uniquely yours. I was trained as an Adult Educator in Britain, and am delighted that, at this stage in my life, I can combine my professional training with doing what I love – that is teaching pottery to adults!"

The Art Schools pottery department is one of the finest in Ontario with Shimpo  wheels, beautiful glazes, on-site firing, and  instruction from professional potters. This studio time is for students that have taken two classes and might not feel ready to be on their own, or for members that might need a little help along the way. This studio time is great for sharing ideas, learning from each other, all while enjoying schedule time in the pottery studio with others.
