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.

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.
