Artists

The artists create one-of-a-kind wheel thrown, hand-built and sculptural works in stoneware, earthenware and porcelain in a diverse range of styles, techniques and glazes from kitchen items and table ware, to classic and funky décor, to museum-quality pieces.

Many of Denman Island’s potters established there in the early 1970s, as a peaceful way to make a living on this rural island paradise.
