At Parceline my work has changed a lot in the last six years. My style has refined, my technique has changed and my products have evolved. The collection that I propose now is very smooth. Entirely designed by turning, the potter’s wheel, I use porcelain, engobes color and a technique of image transfer to print the text on objects. In pastel colors and delicate and geometric patterns, my collection with poetic suspicions is a collaboration with my lover Julien Gagnon, who composes short poems for my ceramics.
My studio is located in Montreal’s Rosemont neighborhood. I share my workplace with other ceramists.

High Prairie, AB
We are Sandi & Dominic and we are currently living and creating Chisel & Hide products out of our home in the woods of rural northern Alberta, Canada. We are a husband & wife creative team. We make everyday goods made from wood and leather.
We started our business in 2017 and have become known for our line of mason jar leather sleeves that feature a hardwood handle. We named our creation “The Woods Mug”. The Woods Mug was designed for my wife who loves to drink her beverages from a mason jar and requested that I design a wooden handle for a leather sleeve she wanted to make. It took months to get the feel just right, but now she is quite happy sipping her coffee every morning.
Our goods are made using a variety of wood species and leathers tanned in North America. We purchase our hardwoods as off-cuts from local manufacturing companies. We try to keep our waste to a minimum by being innovative with our product design and packaging. Part of the Canadian made dishes directory.

As a member of potters guilds and the PEI Crafts Council, With Clay Impressions Pottery I find the sharing of tips and advice among the many different artists an essential element and benefit of the craft.
After two decades, I still feel a thrill in transforming soft clay into finished pots. Creating pottery is a very real connection to nature and to art. Each time I walk outside, my eye is drawn to the beauty in nature or the architecture of buildings and I am inspired to design new work with an emphasis on form and texture.

Valérie Pelletier creates work that evokes simplicity and sobriety and the choice of shapes is part of a refined aesthetic. I offer two complementary and timeless collections. One with speckled clay and the other with dark sandstone. All pieces from both collections have a pale blue enamel. This blue brings depth to the rooms and absorbs us with its brilliance and transparency. Thus, I wanted to create an interesting contrast between the natural side of the bare earth and the rather shiny enamel. Paying particular attention to technique, I still want to keep the trace of the human, which recalls the artisanal work done by hand. Finally, I want to reach people by transmitting to them, through my ceramics, the sensitivity and pleasure that work with clay brings to me. Part of the dishes made in Canada directory.
We moved to the Cowichan Valley from Vancouver in 2003, looking for a more restorative pace and a rural lifestyle. Our property began life as a dairy farm, and we started out growing herbs, flowers and vegetables, selling at local markets. Back then, we called it ‘Artfarm’ and we began to combine our love of the land with our love for tea, researching cultivation and processing of tea plants.
We hand blend original recipe teas and tisanes, and grow and make our very own Canadian terroir tea. Our unique blends are made by hand with carefully sourced certified organic teas and ingredients from around the world. Our hand-built ceramic teaware is crafted to accompany the flavours and enhance every sip. Part of the dishes made in Canada directory.
