I have worked and played with clay for many years now. I studied in Montreal, the Eastern Townships and Toronto. I have fired with gas and electricity. Recently, I have been taking part in a number of wood firings-very exciting and different. There is no doubt that functional pottery, in all its myriad firings, is really what I am all about. I am inspired when I hear that someone used my goblets for their wedding ceremony, or when they tell me that they start off each day reaching for their favourite mug- the one that guarantees that the day will go well, or when someone bakes apples, from the Heath orchard, of course, in one of my baking dishes. It is very fulfilling. This is what clay is all about, it has been for ever and continues to be so for me.
After all the holiday shows in November and December, I have some quiet time to work, and play, with clay. And I have been using that time well! New clays, glazes and forms have been occupying me nicely. Our Spring Pottery and Orchard sale is coming up on May 10th, 11th and 12th. You are invited to come to our home at 67 Wrenson Road, Toronto. We will have all the pottery out, hundreds of beautiful pots, as well as all our orchard offerings-new maple syrup,cider, mushrooms, honey, jams and jellies, and CDs created by my husband and brilliant musician, Chris Rawlings. Snacks and beverages and...free parking. Come and visit!
