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.

 

New Book On Keith Campbell’s Recent Social-Political Works

Keith With The New Book On His Social-Political Works

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.

A new page “About Barry Morrison” added

Read through the sampling of pages created to get a feel for where we are going. There will be many more pages to come. Some of the pages we are working on will give you an idea of where we are going over the next several months and years: Les Manning, John Chalke, the Deichmanns, Peter Rupchan, Gaetan Beaudin. Alain Tremblay, Phil and Alice Switzer, Connie Pike, Peter Powning, Tim Worthington, Pam Birdsall, Ann Mortimer, Robin Hopper, the Selfridges, Jack Sures, Alexandra McCurdy, Carol Smeraldo, and many more!

Unlike a book or an article the site will be ever-evolving, updated and accessible to other ceramists, to collectors, curators, gallery owners, auctioneers and the buying public. A currently existing page can be updated or revised as new information becomes available. Power to the internet!

If you would like to be included by having a page on the site just contact me at studioceramicscanada@gmail.com. We can then talk to discuss how best to get your career, your work and images on the internet. There should be no cost to you apart from the bit of time to talk, correspond and share pictures. The site will complement your own website (if you have one) not replace it. Your presence and accessibility can only be enhanced by expanding your internet presence.

If you would like me to come and speak to your group or at an event, contact me and we can work out a plan.

Join your fellow artists and collectors, and me in this exciting adventure. We have only just begun!
