In The Spirit of Fire, an exhibition at the Potters Place Gallery for the month of July featuring Maeva Collins' pit fired and wood fired ceramic art. Maeva lives and works in Courtenay on 3 acres which gives her the ability to fire her ceramic art creations with wood. These methods of firing serve as a link to ancient techniques and civilizations of the past.

Pit firing produces surfaces that are warm and sensual with patterns reflecting the natural world. Wood firing is an ancient method with a sense of ritual. The wood kiln is fired for 36 hours and stoked every 5 to 10 minutes. In our predictable world, primitive methods of firing result in a creative spontaneity. Potters make the pots and the flames that dance throughout the pit or kiln, create texture, patterns and visual magic

The Potters Place Gallery is delighted to feature Shirley Phillips for the month of June. Drop by and see her vast array of lusciously textured pieces.

Clay allows me to create with texture, colour, and oodles of shapes.
I love to see where " What If " experimenting will take the clay.

I fire my pottery pieces using 3 separate methods:

* Smoke Firing - Layers of sawdust, pottery pieces, branches, dried plants, seaweed, along with sprinkles of salt and colourants are placed in a metal barrel. The top layer of kindling is set aflame and the contents smoulder for 24hrs. or so. Results are mottled grey to black surfaces with flashes of colour.

* Wood Firing - Placed in Gordon Hutchens Anagama firewood burning Kiln, pottery pieces will collect wood ash on their surfaces during a 3 day firing. Luscious shades of salmon, green, yellow and toasty browns will grace their surfaces.

* Digital Electric Kiln- My Stoneware pottery pieces are glazed in vibrant turquoise, green, gold, chocolate brown and other colour combos. I also fuse Beach Glass on wee dishes.

Nature always inspires with constant changes.
