About the artist: Tanya Everard is from Ancaster, Ontario but now resides in Calgary, Alberta. She has a Masters Degree in Geological/Geotechnical Engineering, something she practiced for 9 years before becoming a stay-at-home mother. She has lived in Vancouver, BC, and Brisbane, Australia. It was shortly after her return to Canada that she took an introductory course in pottery at the Alberta College of Arts and Design in 2013. She has been making pottery in her home studio since 2014.
Artist Statement: My goal is to create beautifully adorned and richly coloured pottery that is functional, a pleasure to hold, and beautiful enough for use at both special or daily occasions. My work explores the relationship between pattern and form, at times the pattern accommodating the form, and at other times the pattern defining the shape. I use slip-trailing, underglazes and metallic lustres to create layers of colour and to provide visual focus. Porcelain clay is my favoured medium as it responds well to the human touch, and provides a perfect blank canvas for the decorative techniques I like to use.
