Using the red earthenware clay native to Nova Scotia, Joan creates “wheel-thrown and constructed” pottery decorated with slip and rich, colourful foodsafe glazes.  Her pots combine luscious surfaces with distinct shapes inspired by her environment and love for forming pliable clay.

Anyone interested in attending the workshop can contact Crystal Sohlman at 935-1973.
