Welcome to a new page on on the Hansen-Ross Pottery in Fort Qu’ Appelle, Saskatchewan. David Ross  and Folmer Hansen maintained a joint studio focusing on Scandinavian and Leach-inspired art in the middle of the Canadian prairies. Much of the material is based on an interview I had with Folmer Hansen many years ago.

Stay tuned. More pages are in the works on artists such as Paula Murray, Ann Mortimer, Susan Collett, Enid Legros-Wise, Connie Pike, Les Manning, Stan and Jean Clarke and many others. Anyone who has memories or images of these artists they would be willing to share please contact me.

    Congrats Barry on great Hansen-Ross article – I enjoyed reading about all the connections as they travelled about, particularly Hansen being the hidden Potter at the Deichmanns. I have a lovely little Hansen lamp. Tyler Peace sure has an impressive collection!

    I will attach my article on our ARCH-BC website. The website will always be in process, but for those interested the newsletters make great reading. I meet up with Dave tomorrow to take in his show. I was in Europe at a couple of Biennials and so missed his opening. Some people have told me that they have visited Dave’s show over 3 times. I hope it get some interest going on alternative modernist BC potters. An Emily Carr student wrote a very interesting essay on those very potters, emphasising the women potters….would you be interested in reading it? I could contact her…she is travelling but should see her email. best, d [Hungarian residencies]
