News from around the studio

working by flashlight
October 2021
In September we had some major rain and thunderstorms pass through our region, and our power was out for a couple of days. In addition to the general outage that affected thousands of people, we also had two trees fall across our own power line just east of our home.

I carried on as best I could using flashlights, and managed to finish up a couple of pieces that needed attention. Interesting times in the studio!



We have enjoyed a beautiful summer here on the Bruce Peninsula. We feel lucky to have had fine weather this year, and a chance to see more of our family and friends. Autumn colours are well underway now, and my wife and I are enjoying walks every day.

I have frequent updates about my work on Instagram.

I had a conversation last year with Paul Blais for his podcast The Potters Cast. We talked about my life as a potter, and the joy of new challenges. Here is a link to the podcast interview.

  • Upcoming Events:
