Kakinuma’s teachings, personality and style were profound for the developing BC ceramic community. His life and work characterize the mid-century journey that ceramists undertook in those days. A collective and personal sense of the affection and respect for him can be felt in Debra’ s guest article.
Debra is not only a ceramist herself but also an author, historian and archivist on things BC pottery. Much that can be found today on the history of ceramics in BC are due to her work.
J’ ai ajouté une page sur l’artiste majeur du Québec, Gaétan Beaudin. La page est en anglais .
Son nom apparaît sur les CV de la plupart des grands céramistes d’aujourd’hui. Son amour du milieu, sa recherche, son expérimentation, et son organisation, à un moment où les ressources sont rares, ont eu une influence majeure sur l’esthétique et la créativité de beaucoup de céramistes du Québec aujourd’hui. Il était un opiniâtre mais aussi un partage homme le plus .
Après 1982 les informations sur sa vie et travail devient plus clairsemée. Il ya encore beaucoup de recherches à faire sur cette période plus tard. Néanmoins, profiter de la lecture de sa vie et les pensées, et l’affichage d’une sélection de ses œuvres.
I have added a page on the major Quebec artist, Gaétan Beaudin. His name appears on the resumes of many of today’s major ceramists. His love of the medium, his searching, his experimenting, and his organizing, at a time when resources were few, have been a major influence on the aesthetics and creativity of many of Quebec ceramists today. He was an opinionated but also a most sharing man.
After 1982 the information on his life and work becomes more sparse. There is still more research to be done on this later period. Nonetheless, enjoy reading about his life and thoughts, and viewing a selection of his works
Welcome to a new page on studioceramicscanada.com 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.
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.
