September 8 – October 7
Durham Potters’ Guild
in the Heritage Galleries
Opening reception: Thursday, September 13, 7pm
When we start our day what is our common experience of being in Canada? Some of us live in quiet small towns, in the suburbs or in a large city. We interact with family members and friends. We respond to our surrounding environment in very different ways. We all have various opinions, concerns, unique memories and our own personal histories. Despite how different we may be, what makes it a Canadian morning? Is it what you see, how you feel or something you experience?
In celebration of the Guild’s 30th anniversary, our Heritage Galleries will hold functional creations and beautiful forms. The Durham Potters’ Guild was created to provide members with an opportunity to participate in workshops, to exchange ideas and knowledge, to promote pottery and also as a social meeting-place to become acquainted with other local potters.
Comprising of both full-time and part-time potters, with experiences ranging from just a few years to over thirty plus years, the Guild’s membership has nearly thirty active members. Each potter has an individual style thereby creating a varied selection of both functional and decorative works.
