Calm Sea Pottery

I have always had a love for pottery but that intensified when I lived on Vancouver Island. Being surrounded by great potters in such an amazing setting really piqued my interest even more. Unfortunately, my work schedule didn’t allow me the time to take any classes.

With my husband’s retirement from the Canadian Forces, we made the decision to move back to Nova Scotia in 2019. With a better work/life balance I signed up for classes through the HRM Parks and Recreation program as well as attending every Open Studio session at the Centre for Craft until COVID started. Since then, I had the opportunity to purchase the entire studio contents from a retiring potter. I have set up a studio in my garage and I have flourished. It is such a pleasure to be able to create pottery in the comfort of my own home and is a perfect create outlet from my full-time work as a Safety Advisor.

Angel and I met on Vancouver Island through our husbands. She moved to Nova Scotia in 2021 and didn’t hesitate when I asked her to help me with a craft show. As they say, the rest is history. Angel has developed a deep love of pottery and finds it very therapeutic.
