Blue Leaf Pottery - Wendy Lowe
1428 Davis Lock Rd., Elgin, ON
After a first pottery course at age 9, I experimented in many art forms before returning to the studio of Mary Philpott in Toronto in 2000. The aspect of pottery that drew me is its usefulness in everyday life and I love knowing that pots and bowls will hold something interesting in the homes of the people that own them.
I enjoy decorating my pots, carving shapes and designs into coloured slips I paint on, and then glazing them with clear glaze that shows the contours and colours. Although some of my designs are abstract I get most ideas from the world outside our late 19th century farmhouse.
