  • Rhian Jansen - Rhicreations

  • Melissa Hutchison

    I am a self taught artist inspired by the tone, contour and spirit of my natural surroundings and my life's many journeys. My romance with wood and its multitude of grains stirs my imagination resulting in the application of colour, whether on wood, canvas or cloth, either with paint, dye or wax. I create these pieces in my little studio on Dog Lake.

  • Linda Wolfram Fraser - The Garden Studio

    After experiencing the joy in seeing my Grandmother's discarded, cracked tea pot in my garden every morning I knew I had to bring this happiness to others! Inspired by family, memories AND the need to recycle, reuse and reduce, garden sculpture was born! While travelling far and wide, unique often vintage pieces are carefully chosen for their colour, texture and shape, and then are painstakingly combined to create one of a kind sculptures. Expanding into pottery has become another passion. Clay lets my imagination explode into tangible real life one of a kind creations inspired by nature and the beauty that surrounds me!

  • Jill Spear

    I have always been fascinated by the process of making pots, created either on the wheel or building by hand with slabs of clay. I find the texture and structure of natural forms inspiring which I try to incorporate into my work. It’s a lifelong learning process, while exploring and enjoying the creativity of playing in the mud.
