Pottery by Wendy
I love the integrity and richness of using pottery in my life and have enjoyed making functional pottery and developed a market for my work.
I immigrated to Yellowknife in the NWT from New Zealand as a young woman and discovered the joy of working with clay. Then I moved to Calgary where I continued my passion participating in many courses, seminars and workshops. I was featured in many shows in Calgary galleries and sold my work in Art Market, Circle Craft, the Winnipeg Christmas Show and One of a Kind in Toronto.
Always exploring, I started making raku pots. I was intrigued by the instant results produced by the fire and created the company, Mystic Fire Raku. I developed a market for this work which I sold across Canada and into the USA.
My husband and I then embarked on an offshore sailing adventure where we spent the last 7 years sailing to many exotic places around the world. We have now returned to a land based life on Salt Spring Island where the call of clay inspired by the wonderful visions from our sailing lifestyle has led to my returning to my pottery roots of functional pottery. I love incorporating images which surrounded me on both the sea and land and developed glazes which evoke the colours of nature.
