From scratch and made by hand. Process matters.
I throw my pots on a kick wheel, revelling in the slower rhythms of a human powered machine. My pottery is made using only natural materials from Manitoba and fired in a wood burning kiln. The places my materials come from have a history and a felt presence in the final products. Fireclay from the foothills of Riding Mountain, salacious sand from and ancient delta near Brandon, glacial till from the Interlake, and wood ashes from my kiln. I take pride in harvesting my own materials and am involved in all of the processing required to make a truly local, sustainable and unique product.
