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.

Ruth Gowdy McKinley Page Published

studioceramicscanada.com has just published a new page on the iconic artist Ruth Gowdy McKinley. Much of the page is based on an interview I conducted with Ruth, December 8, 1980. Much help was also provided by her daughter, Lauren McKinley Renzetti. Thank you Lauren.

Click on the link above and enjoy the page, the images and the passion of a great ceramist.

Peter Rupchan, Potter. A new page on studioceramicscanada.com

Peter Rupchan With His Pottery

Peter Rupchan With His Pottery

Welcome to a new page on studioceramicscanada.com. Peter Rupchan was a Ukrainian-Saskatchewan potter who typifies  the pioneer spirit, hardiness and passion of this early phase of 20th century Canadian history. His resourcefulness, creativity and stamina would give pause to most of us as to how easy we have it today. If anyone knows of other images to add to the gallery please contact me.

Stay tuned. More pages are in the works on artists such as Ruth Gowdy Mckinley. Enid Legros-Wise, Paula Murray, Hansen-Ross, Connie Pike, 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.
