Valerie Metcalfe, Winnipeg, MB: Ceramics

Venue Section: Eckhardt Hall/Main Floor

I fell in love with making pots 43 years ago in art school. My inspiration comes from working. It’s a mysterious process, but the more I work, the more ideas come. 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.
