Vic’s been busy getting ready to bring some of our latest pottery to the Gallery of BC Ceramics. That’s the showcase location for the finest pottery by members of the Potters Guild of British Columbia.
There’s quite a process to go through for acceptance into this gallery, including an application with answers to questions about Intent and Design, Process, Clay Body, Method of Work, Originality and so on.
In addition, you also have to provide a series of photographs of a “cohesive” body of your work, and of course an Artist Statement, and a Biography. For this application, we’ve chosen to enter pieces from the Alligator Textured Glaze Series.
By the time you’ve hit your 60’s that biography truly needs a little work, otherwise you’d be turning in a book. However, it’s been a good process and we’ve had to select 5 pieces to bring to the Gallery at Granville Island in Vancouver on Tuesday, June 4th. They’re already selling some of our work, but we hope to have much more available for all the people who love to collect it, but cannot always make it over to Ladysmith, Vancouver Island to visit our studio in person.
I hope you’re as excited about some of these pieces as we are.
