I have been working with clay for almost 40 years since art college and have been fortunate, after a lot of hard work, to make a living from a craft I respect and love.
After moving from Vancouver to the Island, I switched from gas fired pots to electric and delighted to see the response to my new work. Since then I have produced functional dinnerware for several restaurants, supplied galleries, attended shows, taken part in invitational exhibitions, and taken commissions for clients.
I attended “Carlisle College of Art” in the Lake District in England—Beatrix Potter country. After receiving a “Licentiateship of the Society of Designer Crafts”, I apprenticed with well-known potters in the U.K. before moving to Canada.
All of the pieces at Circle Craft are fully functional, made to be microwave, dishwasher and oven safe for ease of use.
