Description: Periwinkle Mug, 2019, earthenware
Materials and process: Hand built earthenware, slip, sgraffito
About the artist: I graduated from The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1997 and have been working full time in clay since then. In 1999 I received an emerging artist award from the Ontario Craft Council (Craft Ontario). Recently I was awarded Award of Merit for the Fusion travelling exhibition(2017-2018). I have been a ceramics instructor for the Kingston School of Art, Kingston Potters' Guild, and Loyalist College in Belleville On. as well as numerous workshops for Pottery Guilds and organizations around Ontario.
Artist Statement:I make decorated earthenware to be used everyday and special occasions. Making objects which people hold, bring to their mouth, and use to nourish themselves and others is a great honour. This intimate relationship which pottery creates between object and user is what keeps me committed to my craft. For me pottery fills an important role as a vehicle to celebrate domestic life and remind us of the beauty in the most fundamental everyday activities.
