box
February 2018
This lidded, stoneware box is a recently completed piece. It stands about 35 cm tall. In addition to the black glaze on the exterior I've also used 23K gold leaf, and aluminum leaf to develop the pattern.

This is one of a series of pieces I've been working this past year that are being put aside for an exhibition in November marking my fifty years of working in clay.



A lot of the pieces I'll be working on this month will be put aside for a solo exhibition I'll be having in November at the Jonathon Bancroft-Snell Gallery in London, Ontario.

Three of my works in clay are part of a group exhibition currently on at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery in Owen Sound, Ontario. The exhibition is titled, Anatomy of a Collector, and was curated by Brian Cooke. The exhibition runs until the end of April.

My photograph Fireflies and Star Trails was selected for a National Geographic assignment published online. The assignment is titled, Exploring Time.

  • Upcoming Events:
    • Art in the Garden The not to be missed annual art sale at the remarkable Keppel Croft Gardens, this year held on July 14th
    • Fifty Years in Clay Jonathon Bancroft-Snell Gallery London ON opening November 7, 2018. This exhibition will mark my fifty years of working with clay as a potter.
  • See you next month!
