Local Potter Wins Again
“Best in Show” and “Design Committee’s Choice” were 2 prestigious awards recently presented to local artist, Ellen Statz.
Best in Show was the top prize awarded at the Ladysmith Fine Arts Show this month, a multimedia juried art show. The piece that won in Ladysmith stands about 31 inches tall, by 13”.
The Design Committee’s Choice award was a thrilling win at the Sooke Fine Art Show last July. This winner was a touching piece titled “Me & You” in memory of Ellen’s late husband.
This beautiful work is on display at the Campbell River Community Centre.
Both of Ellen’s winning entries were from her Rain Forest Series (recently featured at Impressions) using an innovative “Naked Raku” technique.
This month at the Potters Place Gallery you will also see an assortment of beautiful pieces worthy of any international ceramics gallery.... But we have them right here.
Ellen Statz is among the potters that show regularly at The Potters Place. You can see examples of her work throughout the year, Monday-Friday 10-5pm.
We are located at the corner of 5th St. and Cliffe Ave. in the 5th Street Courtyard. Ample parking available at the rear of the building.
