Janet's Profile

About

My background was in accounting and finance. As a mature student, I decided to return to school to experience clay part-time. This led to a decision to return to my favourite medium full-time. I have never looked back or questioned if it was the right thing to do because I was so passionate it about it. I graduated from a full-time ceramic art and design program in Toronto in 1995 and have worked as a studio potter ever since.

I make up all of my own glazes and enjoy experimenting with different materials. Various glaze applications are used alone or layered over a base glaze for wonderous results.

My hope is that my work will have a positive influence on the collector and connect with the enjoyment of handmade pottery.

The clay used is mid-range porcelain.
All work is wheel thrown or made on a slab roller.
Most glazing is applied through the use of a spray gun and compressor in addition to dipping and pouring.
All wares are fired to cone 6.
All work is suitable for microwave and dishwasher, although handwashing will prolong the life of the piece.
Handwash all wooden accessories.
