Between the eagles soaring in the sky overhead KP and the whales in the deep water of GB – that’s where you’ll find two of NL best known artists.. By pursuing their dream in 1990, they created an award winning line of blue and white functional pottery with their signature “Whales and Ropes” designs. As clay artists they produce ceramics intended for the home and table but also enjoy the creative interplay between form and function. Ten years later, in 2002, these artists were recognized for their work and awarded the Golden Jubilee Medal from Queen Elizabeth II in Ottawa, Ontario. In 2003, they expanded their horizons and began creating one-of-a-kind pieces that are fired in a specialized salt/soda kiln – the first of its kind in Atlantic Canada. Their unique technique creates unique colors, textures and visual effects with each and every firing. There are no two pieces alike. Their signature salt/soda plates and vessels have been showcased in The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery in SJs, Newfoundland and as far abroad at the prestigious International Craft Biennalein. When these two are not busy flying around the globe displaying their products or in the workshop making their works of art, that are made 100% from the Earth’s raw materials, they are teaching awareness about the environment and how to reduce, reuse and recycle.
Being able to grow and work with two people who care so much about their environment and the earth as a whole, gives me great pleasure to introduce to you, two of Canada’s best known Potters, Jane Doe and John Doe.
