March 2015 - Nova Terra Cotta Pottery
"Sipping from a unique, hand-made cup invites one to slow down and contemplate the flavour of a good "cuppa" as the hands and eyes are treated to a visual and tactile journey. Few objects in our daily lives offer as intimate and sensually engaging ritual as a finely hand-crafted cup containing a delicious warm drink. My intent as a studio potter is to inspire interaction with my pots through their sensuous forms and colourful surfaces. The pots function as decorative objects which come to life through use. Interaction with the viewer/user completes their aesthetic potential as they contain, deliver or present food, drink or flowers. Preparing and presenting an inspired meal or arranging flowers in a specific container, affirms our connection to identity, while elevating domestic rituals from the banal to beautiful. Using Lantz clay, the red earthenware native to Nova Scotia, my wheel thrown and assembled pottery is decorated with slip, and food safe glazes." - Joan Bruneau
