New Potter...Ursula Sommerer

Large Oval Platter, Blue/lime green glaze

Let me introduce you to our newest potter, Ursula Sommerer, from Montreal. She is a graduate of the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in Fredericton, New Brunswick and of McGill University in Montréal and has won many awards in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia for excellence in design and innovative products.

We just picked up a selection of her porcelain pieces and will be carrying three of her glazes... a blue/lime green combo, a lime green on white and a dark blue. All the pottery has a fish motive which suits the elongated shapes of most of her pieces. They can range from 6" up to 27" wide. I feel confident her work will do really well in the store. We sold a few pieces minutes after I put her work in the window on Saturday.
