Canada C3


Canada C3 is a legacy project marking 150th years since confederation,  connecting Canadians on a 150 day expedition exploring our vast coastline from Toronto through the Northwest passage to Victoria. It is designed to inspire a deeper understanding of our land, our peoples and our country.  I was honoured to be invited aboard Leg 8, sailing from Qikiqtarjuaq to Mittimatalik and asked to respond to this profoundly moving experience with my work.  For a video recap of Leg 8 see my Ceramic Artist FB page or click here . I am planning opportunities to discuss this experience in the coming weeks. For details, please be in touch.


Studio Open House

I need to make more space in my studio, so I will be holding a sale of some fine older work from my salt firing days at greatly reduced prices.  My showroom is also brimming with current work,  both large and small.  You are welcome to stop in for a visit and refreshments and see if anything suits your fancy.

Moving Towards the Light  was selected for the GICB2015 International Competition.  A total of 2,629 entries (by 1,470 applicants) were submitted from 74 countries around the world. 108 works comprise the exhibition.

I am grateful for the financial support of CALQ (Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec). Their funding helped with the shipping expenses, and will enable me to attend the opening of the exhibition along with the many other events organized around this major international ceramic biennale.

The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada has purchased “Reclamation”  through L.A.Pai Gallery, Ottawa for the newly refurbished High Commission of Canada, Trafalgar Square, London.  I understand another work from my “State of Being Series” is in the private quarters of High Commissioner Gordon Campbell.
