The Studio Pottery Canada Website Scores Another Hit With Its Des Loan Article

I have mentioned the Studio Pottery Canada website – http://www.studiopotterycanada.ca/ – before. The site is a much needed addition to the history of Canadian Studio Ceramics.

In a new article on the BC potter, Des Loan, the author, Cliff Schwartz, in concert with Loan’s son-in-law, Peter Flanagan, has shown his skill in research, documentation, and high quality photo-documents, including marks and signatures. Cliff is a collector who truly loves the subject of his research. With a focus on British Columbia ceramics, particularly the Okanagan Valley, he has produced a well-designed website that informative and a pleasure to read.

Cliff describes his site:

Pottery enthusiast learning about the history of this Canadian art form and curating samples from the best in the field pre-1980.

A modest statement, but a powerful addition to the Canadian ceramics story.

The page on Brendan Tang and his art is the first page for the 2015 year for Studio Ceramics Canada.

Brendan, an award winner and currently an instructor at Emily Carr University of Art + Design has developed styles and themes that incorporate his interests ranging from traditional Chinese Ming ware to European Rococo Orientalism and decoration, to Japanese Manga and Anime, to Techno-Pop. His work can be provocative or subtle but is always thought provoking.

Look for future pages on artists such as Judy Blake, Stan and Jean Clarke, and John Chalke.
