Inuit Ceramics From Rankin Inlet (Kangirlliniq)

Rankin Inlet. The name, the location, hardly register for many as a site for ceramic work. Yet, for over a dozen years from the mid 1960s to the mid 1970s it was the focal point for Inuit experimentation and development in clay. The literature and documentation on the period and work are voluminous. But much of it is in academic theses, government archives and arctic related journals. So much there and so many gaps still to be filled in the stories of modern Canadian ceramics.

This article, Inuit Ceramics From Rankin Inlet (Kangirlliniq), is the first in a number of indigenous themed articles planned for over the next few years. Hopefully this article will help fill in those gaps.

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.
