About CuriousBirdPottery

Handmade pottery meant to be used every day.

It's just me from start to finish. I am that curious bird from the initial glimpse of an idea to the bubble wrap shipping of every product. I like to create functional pottery that is made to be used every day. My design choices keep that in mind so I work with Stoneware clay which is strong enough to handle daily use. I formulate my own glazes, fire the work myself and enjoy every minute. It is curiosity that drives me to create, the 'what if I try this' that leads to new designs. I am fascinated with texture and use everything from carved wooden adornment from antique dressers to hand carved linoblocks when impressing designs into soft clay. On the other hand, I also adore modern clean design so to rectify the dichotomy of these two aesthetics, I often use clean lines and strong forms combined with intricate surface texture or glazes with interesting depth of colour.

As for me the person, I grew up in the Saskatchewan prairies as a farm girl who loved making things with her hands. Somehow I ended up living in Toronto with a set of twin boys and a pottery studio.

Thanks for stopping by! I use durable stoneware clay and formulate my own glazes in my home studio so that I have control over the color and chemicals used. My glazes are food safe, leadfree and can be used in the microwave, oven (if heated from room temperature), and dishwasher, although handwashing will prolong their life.
