Dates: 1960s (?) – early 1980s
Artist(s) / Owner(s): Kate and Phillip Budd
Location: Whitehorse, Yukon. The first location of Grey Mountain Pottery was in a neighbourhood called Riverdale in the same ‘mall’ as the Mad Trapper Bowling Alley. The pottery moved to a location beside the TD bank on Main Street in the early 1980’s. It closed soon after moving to this second location.
Grey Mountain Pottery was run by Kate and Phillip Budd. Here they created ceramic mold slipware, and people attended workshops to sand down mold seams and paint the molds with low fire glazes. The studio also had a few pottery wheels and artists could rent studio time.
