Right after the Museum of History Christmas Market, I'm off to Originals at the EY Centre. Hopefully I'll get in a glaze firing or two before or during the show!

Ottawa Guild of Potters members have embarked on a huge project, an outdoor art installation to mark Canada's 150th which will be displayed outdoors at the Museum of Nature June thru August, 2017. 9,000 pieces will be created out of white porcelain clay; one third are feathers representing Canada's indigenous peoples, one third roses representing the British and one third fleur de lys representing the French. Lots of workshops are being held in local pottery studios and schools to make these vast quantities.
This mini installation at the recent Ottawa Guild of Potters Christmas Sale promoted the project and highlighted what will be an incredible visual and visceral effect.

These large vases were made in 3 pieces, first two decorated with slip-trail, and the third with an applique technique. They will hold a generous floral display, making quite a dramatic impression! I'll have them along with me at fall sales...until they find homes.
