Porcelain and stoneware pottery, fine woodworking

Born in Hull, Quebec, I am a ceramic artist and cabinetmaker and divide my time between working with clay and wood. After being hooked on the potter’s wheel while finishing a fine arts program at the Cegep de l’Outaouais in 1996 I went on to study the craft of ceramics all the while working in various cabinet making shops in Montreal. I obtained a vocational degree from Montreal’s Centre de Céramique Bonsecours in 1998 as well as a College technical training in cabinetry and architectural millwork from l’École Québécoise du Meuble et du Bois Ouvré in 2003. From 2003 to 2005 and again in 2010 I stayed in South Korea where I soaked in all I could of their unique and historic ceramic culture. I create utilitarian and decorative ceramics as well as furniture crafted from local and exotic woods. Located in Campbell’s Bay I also offer pottery lessons covering all aspects of throwing on the wheel. I primarily work with high fire stoneware and porcelain. Form and its stand-alone elegance are what I am after with my pottery. The many glazes I use are of Korean, Chinese and Japanese origin fired to 1285 Celsius. I have been a participating artist in the Pontiac Artists’ Studio Tour since 2009 and take part in many shows and exhibitions throughout the year.
