Winnipeg’s Stoneware Gallery, founded in 1978, is one of the longest running artist’s co-operatives in Canada. The pottery displayed is among the best available in contemporary ceramics and an essential acquisition for the contemporary collector. The members utilize a wide variety of styles and techniques which have won many of them national and international recognition. Their quality artwork ranges from tableware to one of a kind objects suitable for private, corporate or architectural settings.
Over the years the Stoneware Gallery has provided many ceramic artists with the security of an eager market for their work. The shared workload and costs associated with running the business, together with a loyal clientele of pottery collectors has allowed many a potter to make a reasonable living.
The Stoneware Gallery shares its space with the Stoneware Studio. The Studio offers seven classes a week in the art of throwing and firing in their large gas kiln. Hundreds of students over the years have been educated in the joys of making pots.
The artists may be contacted directly (see individual artists’ pages) or through the Gallery.
