backporch pottery

        ceramic art

     handmade  in Port Dover

"...failure with clay was more complete and more spectacular than with other forms of art. You are subject to the elements... Any one of the old
four – earth, air, fire, water – can betray you and melt, or burst, or shatter – months of work into dust and ashes and spitting steam. You need to be a precise scientist, and you need to know how to play with what chance will do to your lovingly constructed surfaces in the heat of the kiln.”

– A.S. Byatt, The Children's Book
