I have added a page on ceramist John Chalke. I think you will find not only familiar but also lesser known details about John and his art.

Many thanks are owed to Barbara Tipton for her generous support.

Enjoy the page.

    Hi Barry, I can’t seem to link onto his page. I can get the show page.

    I’m so glad I went to his show. You really needed to see his work unclose, very close for the minutia of effects! I left with a whole new level (richter scale!) of appreciation of his work.

    Cheers, Monika

    JOHN CHALKE’S PAGE ON STUDIO CERAMICS CANADA

    Thank you to all who participated in this outstanding presentation of John Chalke’s Life and Works in ceramics.

    Kudos to Barry Morrison for creating the Studio Ceramics Canada site.

    Canada is such a vast country where individual Provinces actually seem like different countries and individual ceramic artists can be unknown completely to the larger national ceramic community.

    Each Province has a cornucopia of talented Ceramic Artists, but rarely are these individuals visibly accessible even on a provincial level, let alone to the national ceramic community at large.

    It is difficult to believe that Canada does not have its own National Ceramic Organization, hence No Annual National Ceramic Exhibition.

    The American NCECA organization is an enviable entity.

    I believe this website will become an extremely valuable library of information about Canadian Ceramic Artists.

      Thank you for the kind words, Glenys. Your observations about the status of ceramics in this country are some of the key reasons I started the website. Continued success in the Sooke area of Vancouver Island.
