Although their work is sold at the shops and shows listed on the next page, there is also a showroom at the studio. You are welcome to visit.

The pots are made primarily on the potter’s wheel of a stoneware clay from Alberta; glazes are mixed on site. The kiln is a large old beast yielding varied colouration due to the reduction atmosphere and lengthy firing process. The high temperature (about 2350 degrees F. or cone 10) ensures durability. All the ware is intended for daily use. It has no toxic ingredients, and is safe in the oven, microwave, and dishwasher.

The kiln is housed in a unique dome structure designed and built by Bill, who studied architecture at the University of Waterloo from 1968-72. Ruth, on the other hand, got a degree in art from the University of Iowa before immigrating to Canada in 1972.
