(Dirty Dragon Studio)

Mudge Island

I am an amateur potter living on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. I have dabbled in different media but for now I am focused on clay, having been smitten with the almost endless possibilities for form and decoration that clay presents. I enjoy making pots with sculptural elements, things which look interesting no matter which way you hold them.

Ladysmith

Creating vessels for both contemplation and daily use, enriching and inspiring lives––this is my vocation.

Born in Fredericton, New Brunswick in 1959, I moved with my family to British Columbia in 1966. I am a self-taught exploratory potter and have never done anything else for a living. My works have been exhibited worldwide, but I find as I age that I am less interested in exhibiting. My greatest pleasure is in meeting the people who come to my gallery to pick out a new favourite for themselves or helping people from afar choose a piece online.

Gibsons

Nature surrounds me in this place where the mountains meet the sea, becoming my inspiration to create. Whether kept for one’s own use or given as a gift, my creative energy follows the pieces I make, becoming part of the lives of those who use them.

My pottery is colorful, fun and often whimsical. Each piece is hand built and unique. My intention is to create pottery that will make people smile for years to come.

Hilary Huntley
(Trial by Fire Pottery)

Cowichan Bay

Hilary found clay in 1996 in Bonnyville while working as a roughneck on the service rigs. It was a constant through 5 years of college and university and turned into a central theme while firefighting paid the bills. Hilary moved to Vancouver Island in 2006 and turned pottery into the focus and tiny income while healing from the vast traumas that threatened to consume. Clay has been the daily work, the crank to turn each morning, the humble ask of the kiln gods to melt and fuse, the calm that must be accessed to centre and influence the soft buttery goodness. Hilary enjoys sharing this lifelong passion for clay with tiny classes in the pretty studio in Cowichan Bay.

Pots are available at the Imagine That! Gallery in Duncan, BC and online

(Robin's Nest Pottery)

Tsawwassen

My experience with clay began about 20 years ago with classes at Aberthau, West Point Grey, in Vancouver, B.C. My fascination with clay has evolved from throwing simple pots, to throwing better simple pots, and to rolling, cutting and raku firing tiles. I like simple, clean lines with just a hint of detail, something that makes the observer want to pick up my creation to take a second look.

Art, especially pottery, has been a constant in my life...from art school to skipping classes in university in favour of the "pottery lab," to garden design, and back to pottery. My most recent work as a landscape designer has transitioned into full- time potting with the Aberthau Potters. It all runs together and feeds my creative spirit. I've fed that creativity at MISSA, at Shadbolt (with its myriad of firing facilities) and at the Aberthau studio through the club and its workshops.

Falkland

I had a life-long passion for pottery but it wasn’t until 1992 after moving to the North Okanagan that I started making it, as my second career. I enrolled in the ceramics summer program at Emily Carr College and since then have attended many workshops with internationally known potters, through the Potters Guild of B.C., Metchosin International Summer School of the Arts and Red Deer College.

I live on 2-1/2 Acres near Falkland, B.C. My continuing vision is to work in the peaceful natural setting of my home, producing quality pieces for discerning customers.

Stephanie Lowe

Whistler

Stephanie Lowe was working as a freelance writer and essayist when she first encountered the medium of clay. The ancient media immediately sparked Lowe's imagination and love of history. Using her hands to create each piece ties her to pottery artists across cultures and time.  An avid reader and writer Lowe designs creations in both 3D and 2D that are narrative in nature -- telling their own stories as her sculptures or making room for ours in her functional ware. As an educator in Los Angeles, first at Free Arts then in a high school classroom, Lowe brought her love of art to 100's of inner-city children and teens in LA County. However, it was in retiring from her full-time career as a classroom teacher, that Lowe turned her full attention to her  own art,  relocating to Whistler, British Columbia in 2018 and making art in the beautiful coastal Canadian mountains.
