Valerie Metcalfe, Winnipeg, MB: Ceramics
Venue Section: Skylight Gallery/3rd Floor
I fell in love with making pots 44 years ago in art school. My inspiration comes from a mysterious process, and the more I work, the more ideas come to me. They manifest as images that suddenly come to mind, sometimes in dreams. I am a production potter and my work is primarily functional, but to me beauty is part of the function. I prefer using porcelain because of greater decorative expression and range of colour.
