3700 Lake Road, Denman Island
Tom Dennis’ studio location provides tour-goers the perfect opportunity to venture up to Denman’s north end.
The Lake Farm is just that extra little bit farther off the beaten track where the peaceful solitude of island living is truly palpable!
It has certainly proven to be the perfect work environment for Dennis who after so many years alternating between a tractor and the seat of his pottery wheel continues to enjoy the meditative practise of producing beautiful functional wares.
Sturdy mugs, vases so tall they would make excellent umbrella stands, squared plates, and ample platters currently line the studio showroom shelves alongside hearty bowls and more in a combination of shades ranging from moss green and ruby red to mauve and golden brown.
Double dipping, pouring, and spraying overlapping glazes are several techniques Dennis uses to achieve his versatile colour range.
