Combs featured artist at Potters Place

The Potter's Place in Courtenay offers Shelley Combs as featured artist for September.

The Potter’s Place in Courtenay offers Shelley Combs as featured artist for September.

Shelley’s style is filled with details, textures and contrasting colours. She has taken her characteristically whimsical and esoteric hand-built pieces to the level of storytelling. Each piece is a dialogue between the viewer and the maker.

What makes them all the more compelling is that they are also functional — from lidded jars to serving plates, candle houses to bowls.

It’s a marvellous display of work, well worth seeing. The artist will be in the store all day on Sept. 17 and 24.

The Potter’s Place is at 180B Fifth St. on the corner of Fifth and Cliffe in the cultural heart of downtown Courtenay. It’s open Mondays to Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
