canadian ceramics

Sarah Pike is a full-time ceramic artist living and making pots in Fernie, BC.  She studied ceramics at Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary, Colorado University in Boulder, and the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. She makes pottery that conveys personality, a slight air of attitude, that first step off the path. In that vein, her pots are never entirely symmetrical, as though they are leaning towards animation and their intended use. Sarah’s pots are inspired by many things, including the landscape around her home, the rich history of pottery, but also by antique tinware, textured metal, and old things you might find in barns.
