Cape Breton Clay  Each of Bell Fraser's and Stewart Applegath's clay works comes out of a chain of time-consuming processes. The fish or shellfish, which are molded from clay, reflect the bounty of the waters surrounding Cape Breton Island. Unlike the work involved in making other types of pottery, the application, painting and glazing of these 'critters' adds time and complexity to the fabrication of each piece. Aside from the rich detail evident on the creatures, the navy-blue glazed surfaces are hand-applied in three successive coats by brush, rather than by dipping. The cumulative results of these processes are works that are complex, elegant and beautiful. (NS)

Clayworks Pottery  Clayworks' Pottery is hand-crafted on the potter's wheel. Each piece is glazed and hand-painted with our unique and colourful brushwork decorations. Our pottery is functional as well as decorative. It is dishwasher, oven, microwave safe and lead free. (NS)

Lucky Rabbit Pottery  Hand crafted porcelain pottery with distinctive decoration produced by Nova Scotia potters Debra Kuzyk and Ray Mackie. Pieces are individually created and decorated in their studio in Annapolis Royal and displayed in their gallery in historic Annapolis Royal. (NS)

maripottery  Maripottery creates, sells and teaches exceptional pottery. I work with many techniques to produce many different styles and types of pottery: functional, pueblo, lattice work, raku, and traditional Hungarian. For me the vast range of styles and techniques developed across a multitude of cultures and periods presents too great an opportunity for expression to ignore or to limit myself to one or two. I must explore and embrace as much as I possibly can. (BC)

Lara Melnik - Polymer Clay Artist  Lara has been making unique jewellery for many years. Her obsession with beads has driven her to create her own, using polymer clay and the ancient Italian technique of millefiori canework. She has a strong attraction to striking colours and this is evident in her recent exploration of the medium. Lara has been creating small landscapes and abstracts by blending and layering the clay. Texture, colour and relief play an important role in these scenes and three-dimensional wall sculptures. Tiny gardens and forests of whimsical mushrooms seem to "grow" right out of the wall. Lara is happy making art that puts a smile on someone's face. (YT)

Pike Studios Pottery and Metal Gallery  I create dinnerware in six designs, and many other functional and elegant pottery pieces. Serve beverages from beautiful handmade teapots and jugs with settings of coffee mugs, glasses and goblets, and the essential cream and sugar set. Enjoy the convenience of oven-to-table baking dishes, pie plates, casseroles, and platters. Expand your kitchen storage with canister sets, colanders and bowls, garlic jars, and honey jars. Also available are vegetable dip platters and trays, and vases. Besides being beautiful and useful, each of these pieces can also go in the oven, dishwasher and microwave. (AB)
