5315 East Road, Denman Island
A visit to Hanne Christensen’s East Road studio provides a spectacular view of Lambert Channel and the pleasure of perusing a full spectrum of lovely functional wares made the traditional way on a silent kick wheel (self-powered, without electricity).
European style tea-pots, butter dishes, bowls, dinner plates, jugs, and kitchen containers for every need come in shades of forest green, nite sky blue and multi-cored glaze. Christensen’s trademark pussy willow pattern also adorns vases, casserole dishes, hanging planters and smaller items like soap dishes and lotion dispensers. So many handy, innovative items – one recent addition is a lovely ceramic bowl perforated for both dispensing and containing knitting yarn. Collanders designed to serve grapes at the table are yet another novel gift idea!
