One of the joys of working on Studio Ceramics Canada is the discovery of collectors who enjoy modern Canadian studio pottery. Larry Lewis is one. Larry has just brought his collection online with his website http://artshuttle.com/ . Artshuttle’s content is wide but there are two sections that will catch your attention: firstly, an extensive collction of Axel Ebring pots, the largest private collection I have seen; and secondly an extensive section on modern Canadian pottery from ceramists across Canada. Just click on the Ceramics tab to start exploring the drop down menus. Then click on a picture to see a larger format with details.

Enjoy the site. Let Larry know you’ve been there.

Barbara Tipton Page Added to Studio Ceramics Canada

 

 

I have added a page on Barbara Tipton. For over three decades Barbara has explored the theme of cups, saucers and teapots in a unique and instantly recognizable style. What Barbara can do to a subject that is so often taken for granted will take your breath away!

Also included, providing a strong contrast, is a sampling of Barbara’s functional pottery.

Enjoy the page and let Barbara know you how much you admire her work.

Alexandra McCurdy. Last Days To Catch Her January Exhibition And Sale At the Gardiner Shop.

If you haven’t done it yet make sure you catch Alexandra’s exhibition and sale in the Gardiner Museum shop. Yes, that’s the shop! The works are classic McCurdy, including her iconic boxes and bowls. Alexandra has a long relationship with the Gardiner. In fact, 30 years ago, as the first artist displayed in the shop, Peter Gzowski opened her show, a huge success, and interviewed her on Morningside. She was, therefore, invited to be the January 2018 featured artist to celebrate the Gardiner shop’s 30 years of operation.

The exhibition and sale run for the month of January. A must see for collectors and McCurdy fans!
