Hi, I am Bear. I live in Saskatoon, Canada.
I began creating pottery in 2018 with a class at a community studio and started to experiment and practice part-time. In 2020, I made the decision to build myself a tiny home-studio in my apartment and to spend my days making pots. My ceramics are made for daily enjoyment. I try to create pieces which are special, yet not too precious not to be touched. As much as I enjoy making pots, I LOVE to know others enjoy using them. I don’t always have deep thoughts about why I make what I make, but that’s only because my creations sometimes make people smile.
One of the things I love most about clay is the community which surrounds this practice. Since I started my clay journey, I have been very fortunate to meet so many people who are generous with their time, knowledge and resources. I am grateful to have been welcomed into this global clay family. This environment continues to strengthen my desire to explore my possibilities in clay world!
