I have added a short page on the Art Gallery of Burlington to The Collectors and Collections section of the site. The AGB is a major player in promoting, exhibiting and collecting Canadian ceramic artists. Check it out.
I have added a page on Margo Meyer. She has been called “the matriarch of functional ceramics” in Newfoundland and Labrador. Her knowledge, skills and tenacity shaped the existence of studio pottery in the province today. Although she sold her works across Canada her desire for privacy kept her below the radar of many collectors and galleries.
Enjoy reading about her life and viewing a brief slide show on her work.
Of course, if you know of or have pictures of her work please let me know. Her page can be easily updated
Enjoy the elegant forms and birds and the dynamic surfaces of Canadian ceramist Judy Blake. Judy’s specialty is smoke firing in its many forms: naked raku, sawdust and saggar firing. Tucked away in Lincoln, NB, she is making her presence felt on the national and international scene.
You can also see more of her work on Judy Blake’s website.
The books on our ceramics artists just keep on coming!
“KEITH CAMPBELL” is a new book written by Jonathon Bancroft-Snell and published by Ronald P. Frye & Company. This book is about Keith’s social-political clay works. Often comical and irreverent the works are always seeking new truths in Keith’s inimitable style. Check out Keith’s page on this website.
Congratulations, Keith. Thank you Jonathon.
