Introducing Katy Perry: Show and Sale 2016

4 Dec

English Lily Designs is a product of years of hopes and dreams.  I started “potting” when I left Canada to live and study in Taipei.  I love taking a squishy piece of clay and moulding it into something both beautiful and useful.  Clay however, has a mind of its own. It will only be pushed so far, after which it must be gently coaxed.  So started my love affair with clay.

 I later moved to England, where I trained at a little pottery in Chipstead, Kent.  It is there that I learned pottery from a long history of English tradition.

English Lily Designs is a blend of the English love of stoneware and the colours and designs from the exotic Lily of the East.  I create unique pieces with my mark “KT” for English Lily Designs and I hope you enjoy them as much as I have making them.

See a selection of pots by Katy Perry, aka English Lily Designs, at the Toronto Potters Winter Show and Sale, December 8-10, at the Toronto Botanical Garden, 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie). FREE admission and parking.

Introducing Janny Wong: Show and Sale 2016

4 Dec

I started my pottery journey 20 years ago.  Initially for relaxation, potting has grown into enjoyment, and has become part of my life. It is a great way to express thoughts and creativity. Through my pots I aim to connect and bring pleasure.

Inspired by nature, I like to create pots that have life and movement.  My latest series of work features pots with a white background.  Vibrant colours and designs are used to bring out energy and vitality. 

I hope you will enjoy them as much as I did making them.

Janny will have a selection of her work at the Toronto Potters Winter Show and Sale, December 8-10, at the Toronto Botanical Garden, 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie). FREE admission and parking.

Introducing Sandi Dunkelman: Show and Sale 2016

I LOVE to make pots, and have been doing so for many years. The excitement of doing something new never seems to go away. I focus on making beautiful pots which people will enjoy looking at, using and holding.

Recently, I’ve started making clay jewelry, and am really enjoying this new aspect of my work.

Introducing Judith Morsink: Show and Sale 2016

4 Dec

Judith’s recent sculptures, one of which is shown below, were inspired by a fascination with webs, the many items that get caught in webs and the different shapes that webs can form. She has been working at enclosing previously made small sculptures in a complicated entanglement of webs.

You can see Judith’s work at the Toronto Potters Winter Show and Sale, December 8-10, at the Toronto Botanical Garden, 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie).  FREE admission and parking.

Introducing Lynn Heath: Show and Sale 2016

4 Dec

I have worked and played with clay for many years now. I studied in Montreal, the Eastern Townships and Toronto.

I fire with electricity and have experimented with saggar and raku firing. Functional pottery is really what I am all about.

I am inspired when I hear that someone used my goblets for their wedding ceremony, or when they tell me that they start off each day reaching for their favourite mug- the one that guarantees that the day will go well, or when someone bakes apples, from the Heath orchard, of course, in one of the my baking dishes. It is very exciting.

This is what clay is all about, it has been forever and continues to be so for me.

To learn more about Lynn visit her Website.

A selection of Lynn’s work will be available at the Winter Show and Sale, December 8-10, at the Toronto Botanical Garden, 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie). FREE admission and parking.

Introducing Shaun Kelly: Show and Sale 2016

4 Dec

Experimental Ceramic Artist, that is I.

I believe that the medium creates infinite possibilities, which I accept as a challenge, and throw myself into every aspect of it.

My work is constantly changing, from functional to non-functional, the ideas and projects develop over time with me. This creates quite the journey that I’m more than happy to be a part of!

To hold and use a piece of hand-made pottery is quite unique. I would encourage everyone to at least try it out. I will warn you though, you may become as hooked as I am if you aren’t careful!

You will find a selection of Shaun’s work at the Winter Show and Sale, December 8-10, at the Toronto Botanical Garden, 777 Lawrence Ave E (at Leslie). FREE admission and parking.
