“After years of working with clay all across Canada I finally decided to base myself in a historic home in rural Newfoundland and found Wild Cove Pottery. In this location my connection to nature has flourished – I often work outdoors digging clay, cutting wood, and collecting glaze materials for use in my studio. I’ve also unexpectedly been drawn into the unique cultural experience my region offers – I can be an entrepreneur in this hub of creative activity and continue to work as a contemporary ceramic artist.”
