I became an associate member of the Studio in 1975 and a full member in 1977. At this time the studio was located downtown on Dupont Street. During the move to Thorncliffe Park I was very much involved in painting the new premises and setting up the studio as it is today. The co-operative nature of the Potter’s Studio has meant serving on many committees including a term as president, but most of all I have produced the quarterly Newsletter.
I took my first lessons in pottery at Central Technical School, but when the classes became full I went to Centennial College and learnt all about pottery from Ron Roy, and excellent teacher.
I enjoy working with clay and like to experiment with throwing both miniature and large functional pieces on the wheel. For a change of pace I also hand build sculptural pieces. I have participated in many sales including the Toronto City Hall Square annual art show and sale. I also entered pots in the women’s division competition at the Canadian National Exhibition over a number of years and in that time won first prize for outstanding glazing and an honourable mention for other entries.
