The Stoneware Gallery Page Added To Studio Ceramics Canada

The Stoneware Gallery, Winnipeg

Keeping in mind the contribution that influential pottery groups make to sustaining and training ceramists in various region across Canada I have added a page on Winnipeg’s The Stoneware Gallery.

Without a formal Manitoba provincial potters’ guild or association this collective is critical for the visibility and quality of ceramics of all types, not only in the province but across the country. The various artists involved over the years have been doing this for almost forty years. Remarkable!

I have added a page on Les Manning, artist, teacher, mentor to so many.  I hope the page gives you insights into Les the Man, as well as Les the artist.

Les Manning’s roots are small town Alberta. His life has encompassed the world. Many can recognize his signature style of  mountain landscapes but his most recent works in the Common Opposites exhibition are pure Les Manning, free to be himself.

Enjoy the page. Let me know what you think.

Based on many of the enquiries I have received I am thinking about adding a section on ‘Signatures, Marks, Chops’ to the studioceramicscanada.com website. Would this be of interest and value to you, artists, collectors, readers and followers?
