Aya Izumi Ceramics
I make ceramic pieces that will hopefully be a part of your everyday life, and make it a little bit nicer in any possible way.
I try to keep my work simple yet elegant enough to embody beauty of fragility, softness and strength in ceramic pieces.
Ceramics by Franziska
My offering is functional and decorative pottery featuring nature inspired photography.
If you are inspired by plants and animals then you might like the illustrative sepia toned prints that live on the inside and outside of my pots. The best part is, it is all dishwasher safe. Whether you are looking for mugs, cups, jugs, plates, bowls, serving dishes, egg cups for daily use or something more decorative like hanging vases and planters or ceramic jewelry, there is a lot to see on my site.
Dirt Light Shadow
Dirt Light Shadow is a BC-based Ceramic Studio making functional pottery including mugs, jars, food containers, bowls etc. They have simple lines and a cool colour pallet that is inspired by our oceans. Other offerings include framed ceramic reliefs, porcelain jewellery with depth and layers of detail. Most work is fired at least three times to obtain its beautiful luster. Motivations include reducing plastic in the Kitchen, developing timeless designs and creating singular objects to embellish your home and unique adornment to rock your style.
As a conceptual artist I've never settled with one media therefore my stand is always an explosion of ideas-my main media last few years is porcelain and I can't get enough. I hand paint every piece and even when I try I can't do the same image twice, they are always unique. Most of the standard dishes (plates, bowls, vases, flowerpots and mugs) are done on wheel by my friend Nancy Alexander. I mainly paint them and if there's spare time I make few pieces too. I also work as an illustrator and painter and you can always find on my stand my books, prints, cards, matrioshka dolls, felted creatures, jewelry and anything else that catches my attention.
Kendra Shaw Ceramics
Handmade functional ceramics.
Kendra Shaw is a ceramic artist originally from the east coast of Canada, currently residing in beautiful Victoria, BC where she shares a sunny and magical studio with several other local potters.
She creates thoughtful ceramic art through reflections on the intersection of form and functionality. Her pieces draw inspiration from the beauty of the coast, the morning light through her studio window and the subtle art of everyday objects.
Hand-made ceramic wares and porcelain jewelry.
Léïa-Fahé Studio designs and makes colourful ceramic ware and porcelain jewelry. Each piece is handmade either on the wheel, hand built or cast from hand-made moulds. The work mixes modern Scandinavian and Italian design influences with a contemporary touch.
Mary Loria Ceramics
Hand made bright, functional and decorative ceramics. Mainly hand built and wheel thrown pieces made of porcelain and porcelaineous stoneware.
I work in porcelain to produce decorative and functional ceramic pieces. The delicate nature in working with porcelain requires me to be patient, to try new techniques and to constantly push boundaries. I produce both wheel thrown pieces as well as hand built and a combination of both. I am drawn to the crisp light colour and translucency of porcelain. Explorations in the use of texture and the many ways to create it allow me to produce work that can be both familiar and intriguing.
I make handmade ceramics, focusing on functional pieces and tableware. I strive to create delicate yet useful pots and draw inspiration from the natural world.
Sarah Johnson is the one woman show behind Rogue Ceramics. She lives in Victoria, British Columbia where she works for a web design company by day and pots in her humble studio by night. Her love of mud has taken various forms throughout her life, and her affinity for having her hands in the dirt naturally led her to clay and the wheel. Rogue Ceramics strives to create pieces that reconcile movement with tranquility, minimalism with approachability, and intentional design with the natural world.
Wicked Wanda Pottery
Handmade pottery brings people to be more conscious of where their dishes came from, that it has a human touch, and hopefully allows for more thoughtful consumerism, with kinder materials for our environment.
The ultimate goal with the pieces I create is that they become part of everyday life, our daily rituals, gatherings with friends and family, etc. This carries out a common theme found in many of my previous work - noticing, exploring and nurturing seemingly insignificant events. These are small connections, the often unnoticed links we tend to create with one another and our surroundings that we ultimately build our lives around.
All pieces are wheel thrown or hand built, glazes are mixed in house and everything is fired by me in my studio.
