Dawn Mills Pottery
Dawn loves the process of wheel-throwing to make simple pieces for everyday use. A cut rim or off-wheel altering of the form gives Dawn’s work a modern distressed look, a touch of beauty in imperfection or wabi-sabi. Dawn’s early experience as a Studio Potter included studies at the Banff School of Art with influences from traditional Asian folk pottery, Scandinavian form and modern British sculptors.
The making begins in her new Eriksdale Studio, West Interlake, Hwy #6 & #68. It ends either with a splash of colour from an electric glaze firing or in the Japanese style wood-fired kiln at Alan Lacovetsky’s (Studio #2). This final wood firing can take 25-30 hours of stoking with help from a keen ‘burn’ crew.
Display will be outside for ease of access to a yard filled with pottery, demonstrations and friendly faces.
