One does not have to go far to find exquisite Canadian pottery. A friend brought these pottery artists to my attention.
ROD & DENYSE SIMAIR live and work in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. They are Internationally acclaimed crystalline ceramic artists, creating stunning works of heirloom quality art.
“The Simairs combine their talents with Rod’s elegant and masterfully thrown original porcelain designs harmoniously brought to fruition through Denyse’s personally researched, formulated and fired macro-crystalline glazes. The results are heirloom keepsakes of aesthetically inspiring ceramic art to cherish now and for generations to come.
Rod has a natural bond with the wheel. To him, beautiful forms and scale are all joyful “physics in motion”, as a part of him is transferred into the energy of each and every piece he creates.
Denyse incorporates the abstract and familiar together with developmental glazing techniques. Her work has been described as having “a familiar warmth, with a touch of intrigue and mystery”.
The exquisite vases by Rod and Denyse Simair include some of the rarest in the world, particularly in the area of large wheel thrown raku and crystalline glazed porcelain. Rod and Denyse combine their talents in a way which highlights one another’s strengths, producing rare and distinctive award winning works of art. Their works can be found in collections throughout the world.” – website.
