We were lucky enough to be able to check out Meg in her element this past Summer. She was able to show us the entire process from kneading to firing. It was amazing. Thanks Meg!
A bit about Meg:
Meg flourished in the University of Calgary Ceramics Dept. while acquiring her Bachelor of Arts degree. She moved to BC and began a career in pottery, which she pursed in Vancouver, Whistler and Pemberton. Focusing on production of functional high-fired stoneware as well as one of a kind art pieces, she has made pottery that is enjoyed in homes throughout Canada and the United States.
This artist's creations are now fired in a gas kiln at her studio in Pemberton using glazes she personally developed. The love for hand thrown wheelwork and revealing the unique qualities that ''reduction'' fired glazes create has motivated Meg's involvement in clay for the last twenty years. Bringing art and the medium's natural beauty to household objects is a continual theme in this potter's work.
